Carrot Halwa/Gajar Ka Halwa


Today's recipe is an exotic and colorful halwa made with carrots for the blogging marathon #23 and the theme I chose is carrot in different ways.
When  I selected theme wanted to make carrot cake but due to so many personal works couldn't do the baking.So ended up in making carrot halwa.Now on to the recipe...........


Ingredients

IngredientQuantity
Carrot(grated)31/2-4cups
Milk21/2cups
Sugar3/4-1cup
Ghee3tbs
Cashews/mudiriparuppu10nos.
Almonds/badam6nos.
Cardamom powder/ellakai podi1/2tsp

Method 

                      Grate the carrot in a grater,in a pan heat 1/2tsp of ghee and roast the cashews and almond and keep it aside.In the same pan add 1tbs of ghee and saute the carrot till tender. Now add the milk.
Now add the milk,cook it in a medium flame and stir it continuously till the milk gets evaporated.
Once the mixture becomes thick add the sugar and mix it well.Add the ghee and cook it till it leaves the sides of the pan.
Finally add the cardamom powder and fried cashews,almonds.mix it well.
Carrot Halwa is ready.

 Enjoy....................................
  • Saffron can be added for extra flavor.
  • Instead of regular milk evaporated milk can be used and unsweetened can be added for rich taste.
  • Tastes better when it is warm and enjoy it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
