Gajar Halwa

Ingredients

  • Carrots - 2 cups (app. 4 carrots)
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Ghee - 2 tblsp
  • Nuts & Raisins - 1/4 cup (Almonds &/ Cashews)
  • Cardamon - 2 (crushed or use 1/4 tsp cardomom powder)

Method:

  • Wash and peel the carrots and grate them or grind them. Grating leaves some texture to the carrot at the end but grinding is equally good too.
  • Heat the ghee in a small pan and fry the nuts and raisins in it. 
  • Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan and add the carrot to it. 
  • Cover and cook it on medium flame, stirring occassionally to avoid sticking to the bottom. 
  • After about 15-20 minutes, when all the milk is absorbed by the carrot, add sugar and stir continuously.
  • After about 8 minutes the oil starts getting separated from the halwa. At this stage add cardomom powder, fried nuts and raisins and 1 tblsp of ghee.

 Mix for another minute and switch off.
