Gajar ka halwa

On the occasion of new year, just thought 'kuch meetha hojaye'. Had these deep red carrots in fridge, and carrot halwa is ready in 1/2 an hour.


Ingredients:

Carrots: 5 big
Ghee: 3 tbsp
Milk: 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup
Khoya(unsweetened): 3/4 th cup
Cashews: 5 to 6
Cardamom powder: 1/2 tsp

Method:
  1. Peel and grate the carrots.
  2. Heat ghee in a deep bottomed pan and saute the grated carrots for 5 minutes.
  3. Add milk, sugar and cardamom powder.
  4. Cook on low flame till all the milk is absorbed and halwa starts leaving the sides. 
  5. Add grated khoya and saute. 
  6. Transfer the halwa to a serving plate and garnish with fried nuts of your choice.  
Tip: 

  • Fry the nuts with ghee.
  • Follow the same process for Beetroot halwa by replacing carrot with beetroot.
