Carrot Halwa



This is one of the simplest Halwa to make.This is one of my favourites. I luv the color of the halwa and also adding Nuts and raisins makes it extra special.This recipe is from one of my friend .

Ingredients:

Grated Carrots-3 cups

Milk- 1 1/2 cups

Sugar- 1 1/2 cups

Ghee- 2 tbs + 1 tbs

Cardamom Powder-1/4 tsp

Chopped Cashews-2tbs
Raisin-2 tbs
Chopped Almonds-2 tbs

Method:

In a heavy pan with thick bottom add milk and the grated carrots . Cook until carrots are soft and milk is absorbed, stirring occasionally. . Mix in the Sugar and keep stirring on medium flame. When all the moisture is absorbed add 1 tbs of ghee and cardamom powder.

In another pan add 1 tbs of ghee and chopped cashews,Almonds and raisin. Fry it for few minutes.Set Aside.

When halwa started to thicken add the remaining 1 tbs ghee and the fried nuts,raisin mixture. Mix well. Remove from the flame and garnish with more Almonds.
Enjoy :).

This goes to Sanghi's "FIL Carrot" Event.
