Carrot Halwa

Gajar ka halwa, the Indian pudding called carrot halwa in English, can differ drastically depending on where in India you are. It is one of the most loved and known desserts of India. The most laborious part of the recipe, that is, grating the carrots. It takes a little patience to get the perfect gajar ka halwa but the result is very sweet indeed!

Ingredients:

Grated Carrots-4cup
Ghee-1/2cup
Milk-2cups
Sugar-1cup
Cardamon Pwd-1/2tsp
Nuts a handful

Preparation:

Heat a non-stick pan with ghee,add nuts and fry them and keep aside.For making Halwa always use non-stick pan so that it will not stick to bottom and it not burn also.

In the same pan add grated carrots and fry them for at least 5mints or till the carrots are cooked and they the change colour.When the carrots colour changes at that time add milk and stir well so that all milk is nicely mixed up with carrots.Cook on slim flame until all the milk is absorbed.

when all the milk is absorbed and carrot is cooked well in the milk,add sugar and cardamon Pwd and mix well.Cook on slim flame until all the ghee has oozed out.

Finally add the nuts and mix well and transfer into a serving bowl and enjoy tasty sweet Carrot Halwa.
