Carrot Halwa

             Carrot Halwa or Gajar ka halwa whatever you call it, it just melts in your mouth. This is one such dessert that requires very less ingredients but some effort.


Carrot - 3 to 4 approx
Milk - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Ghee(clarified butter) - 2 tbsp
Cardamom - 2


Peel the carrots and grate them. You need two cups of grated carrot. So choose them accordingly.

Heat a heavy bottomed pan, and add 1 tsp ghee to it. Add the carrot to it and mix well.
Pour in two cups of milk into pan. Mix well and allow it to cook on medium flame.

Keep stirring regularly. This requires around 15 mins approx. Once the carrots are cooked just enough, add sugar and mix. 

Cook on low heat for another 5 mins. Crush the cardamom and add it to the pan. Also add the rest of the ghee to it. 

Once it cools down, refrigerate it and serve it with Vanilla Icecream.

1. Once the sugar is mixed well it leaves some amount of water. Hence add it when the carrots are just cooked. 
2. You can also cook the carrots in water and add milk later. But halwa tastes best when cooked in milk.

Happy Cooking... :)
