Carrot Halwa

Carrot Halwa

This is a North Indian Punjabi dessert ,now famous all over India. Every child will like this sweet .It is easy for us to incorporate a vegetable in their menu.So whenever possible I make a point to do this exotic sweet.Usually they add milk first and then sugar but I have added sugar before adding milk.This is tastes great than the usual method.

Ingredients

  • Carrots -1 cup
  • milk -1/4 cup(or little more)
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • ghee - 2 tbsp
  • cardamom powder - 1tsp
  • cashews - few

Instructions

  1. Fry scrapped carrots in little ghee let it change color.
  2. then add sugar and let it cook in sugar syrup
  3. after it dries up add milk till it is immersed completely
  4. when milk reduces in quantity
  5. Wait till the contents leave the pan without sticking.
  6. Now add cardamom powder and then ghee.
  7. leave for 3 min and add fried cashew-nuts and let it cool.
  8. switch off the stove.

Notes

I have added only cashew-nuts,you can even add pistachios and badam.

Milk can be added little extra than the mentioned amount ,for more richness.

In some variation little sugarless khova is also added .(for 1 cup of milk 10-15 gm of khova is added)

In many hotels they add khova for richness
