"This cake is rich and moist, due to the carrots, but also beautifully tender because of its keynote ingredient, “kashk”, a nutritious dairy product which is very common in Iran. With a deep salty-sour taste, it shines into many delicious savory foods. It is rich in protein and calcium, while very low in fat. If you cannot find it, use the same amount ricotta cheese mixed with a tablespoon of sour orange juice."
