Gajar Halwa


गाजर हलवा (Carrot Halwa)

Ingredients:
  • Finely Grated Carrots: 2 Cups
  • Milk: 3 Cups
  • Sugar : 1/2 Cup or More
  • Cardamom Powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee or Unsalted Butter: 2 tbsp
  • Chopped Cashews, Almonds: 2 tbsp
  • Raisins: 1 tbsp

Procedure:

  1. While grating carrots pour milk in a heavy bottom sauce pan and keep on it on stove. To avoid burning the milk keep stirring in between. Keep boiling & stirring the milk till it becomes half in a quantity or till your carrots are ready.
  2. Soak almonds, cashews & raisins in milk for 10 -15 minutes.
  3. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Add shredded carrots. Cook carrots for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Then add hot milk. Cook these carrots till all milk gets evaporated. Stir in between.
  5. Then add sugar, cardamom powder & dry fruits. Mix everything very well. Cook this halwa for another 4-5 minutes.
  6. Serve this sweet halwa hot, cold or at room temperature.

As a kid i simply loved them. At a time my mom used to make it from 2 kgs carrot, and we finished it in no time..
But here we don't get those yummy res ones, that;s why don't feel like making much ...
