As we were having coffee, my hubby wanted to have something sweet, He also wanted me to make it quickly for him. I had not made halwa in along time. So I made carrot halwa.
  • 1/2 Lbs Carrots
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Ghee
  • 2 Tbsp Nuts(sliced for garnishing)(almond, cashews, pista)
  • 5 Strands saffron
  • 1/4 Tsp Cardamom powder
Peal and grate the carrots.
Heat milk in a kadai, bring to a boil.
When the milk boils, add the grated carrots.
Keep stirring.When the carrots have cooked nicely, and the milk starts to thicken, addsugar and cardamom powder.
Now add ghee and saffron .
Stir on low heat till the mixture collects in a soft ball or the ghee oozes out.
Serve hot, decorated with a chopped nuts.
