1/2 kg carrots
1 cups sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 table spoons oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup water (if you need it)
For the coating
Peel the carrots and grate them
Put your oil and butter in a pan untill the butter melts
Add the grated carrots and stir on medium heat untill the carrot is softened, it takes about 10 minutes
If you feel that the carrots are drying about before they are done, add the water and keep stirring untill they are all soft.
Add the flour and keep stirring for about 5 minutes. (You need to stir to toast the flour and to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn).
Add the sugar, cardamom and lemon juice and stir untill the mix thickens.
Take it off the heat and allow it to cool .
Roll the carrot mix into balls then roll them in the coconuts, ground cookies or nuts.
