GKH2

Gajar ka halwa (Carrot Dessert) is a very delicious and popular dessert of India. Usually made in winters, I tried my hand on it before the season for carrots end.

Serving : 4 (one serving per head)

INGREDIENTS :

Carrots  – 1kg

Pure ghee – 3 tablespoons

Green cardamom powder  – 1/4 teaspoon

Sugar  – 1 cup – 1.5 Cup ( as per sweetness required)

Milk – 500 ml + 1 cup water.

Nuts – as per choice.

Khoya/mawa, grated  – 150gms.

METHOD :

Wash, Peel and grate the carrots.

GKH1

Now take a heavy bottom pan/kadai and heat the ghee. Put in the grated carrots and fry them for about 5-6 mins. Add cardamom powder.

Add milk to it and let it simmer on low heat till the whole milk dries up. This should take around 20-25mins. You should stir the halwa occasionally to prevent any sticking.

Add sugar and again cook for another 6-10mins or so. Now add mawa/khoya and mix it in properly.

Add the nuts as per choice and taste.

Decorate the halwa with dry fruits or silver vark.

Enjoy eating!
