Carrot Halwa

- submitted by Dahlia on 01-08-2008
(Gajar Ka Halwa)
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)

1. 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.
2. Heat the ghee in a small pan and fry the nuts and raisins in it. 
3. Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan and add the carrot to it. 
4. Cover and cook it on medium flame, stirring occassionally to avoid sticking to the bottom. 
5. After about 15-20 minutes, when all the milk is absorbed by the carrot, add sugar and stir continuously.
6. 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.
7. Mix for another minute and switch off. 

      - To make cardomon powder, grind it with little sugar to get a fine powder.

Thank u so much making it by easy way to understand .....I made it without milk i felt that also gives different taste and can store for more than 3 to 5 days too ♥ ♥ ♥

Yes. Milk adds a very unique flavour and texture to the halwa... Of course you can make without it too...
