Gajar ka Halwa

Neither I am a big fan of desserts nor can I make them perfect. As HE has got sweet tooth, I have managed to master a few of them and this is one among them. This is must in Winter Season. Warm Halwa in freezing cold is sheer bliss. The traditional recipe requires milk and khoya hence making cooking process lengthy and little tiresome. Instead, I started using condensed milk and now it’s easier and faster.

Yields 4-5 cup
Preparation Time: 1 Hr
Cooking Time: 30-40 Minute

3 LB carrots (I used 16-18 pc medium thin carrots)
1 cup ghee **
14 oz can of sweet condensed milk
15-20 pc raisins
15-20 cashew nuts
½ tsp cardamom powder
Sugar, if required
** Start with smaller quantity of ghee, add more if required after mixing carrots

1. Grate carrots and keep them aside
2. Heat ghee in sauce pan and add grated carrots
3. Stir continuously until carrots are cooked and ghee starts leaving on the edge
4. Add condensed milk, raisins and cashew nuts
5. Stir constantly until milk evaporates and thick consistent mixture takes place
6. Add sugar, if required
7. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with cardamom powder
