For a spicier version increase double or triple the spice amounts. The amounts above are based on a North American palette just giving a hint of the flavors without being overpowering to this type of palette.
Put mashed carrots through sieve a few times to make it a bit smooth and devoid of chunks. Heat milk in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil reserving a ¼ cup. Mix ¼ of milk with flour in a shaker so it has no lumps and is very smooth then set aside. Add carrot mash and onions then stir in flour and milk mixture. Stir in spices and and cook stirring until smooth.
Serves 4 to 12 depending on the serving size. This may be served hot or cold.
