The Simply Delicious Carrot Halwa

Recently I saw some lovely fresh delhi carrots and prepared this dessert which is one of my favorite dessert recipes which is quick and easy to prepare with a exotic flavor and I am sure it is the same for all of you.

  • 3 cups grated carrot
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp condensed milk - amul milkmaid (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cardamom crushed
  • 2 tbsp ghee(clarified butter)
  • 1 tbsp chopped cashew
  • 1 tbsp kishmis
Wash the carrots nicely ,peel the carrots and grate them with grater or food processor.

Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a deep bottom pan ,add the grated carrot and fry in a low flame,cover and cook till the quantity of grated carrot reduce to half it will take approx 10 min,now add the milk and mix it properly ,now cover the pan and cook in the low flame till carrot will become soft and milk almost absorbed.This procedure will take 30 min.

Now make the flame high to evaporate the remaining milk quickly into the halwa.

Now add sugar and condenced milk and stir continuously till the mixture starts to leave the side of the pan ,add 1/2 tbsp ghee and switch off the flame.

Fry the chopped cashewnuts with 1/2 tbsp ghee till light golden brown, then add the kismis, once the kismis become fluffy add the cardamom powder and then add this to the halwa.

Mix nicely till  they blend properly and serve warm. 

Note: You can also add khoa instead of condensed milk
