|Gajar ka Halwa|
Gajar (carrots) – 1 Kg
Sugar (200-250 g)
Milk – 1 liter
- Wash the carrots, peel-off their skin with a peeler and grate them.
- Chop cashews and almonds.
Heat 2-3 tablespoons of ghee in a pan. Add grated carrots to the pan and sauté until the carrots turn soft. Cover the pan with a lid for about 5 minutes. Remove the lid and add milk to the pan and stir properly until most of the milk is absorbed by the carrots. (This might take about 15-20 minutes). Now add raisins, chopped cashews and almonds to the pan and mix well. Add sugar to taste (about 200-250g) and stir well. Cover the pan with a lid for about 5 minutes. Remove the lid and transfer the halwa to a serving bowl.
Garnishing! Garnish with dry fruits and fresh cream (optional). Gajar ka halwa is ready to serve.
Note: Gajar ka Halwa can be served either hot or cold. It tastes equally yummy in both forms.
