Carrot Halwa

I don’t think there is anyone of us who is not fond of this delicious dessert. There are several versions of carrot halwas like low calorie ones, with milk or without milk, micro-oven or stove cooked, steamed carrots or boiled carrots… how ever they make it, I will just delve into it. Hot carrot halwa and plain vanilla ice-cream are both a sweet married couple; having them together executes a wonderful explosion inside the mouth.

2.       Milk – 1 cup
3.       Sugar – ½ cup
4.       Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
5.       Cashew nut – 2 tbsp
6.       Ghee – 5 tbsp


Step 1: In a non-stick pan roast the cashew nuts in ghee; pour and keep it aside
Step 2: In the same pan place the grated carrot & milk and let it cook for 10 -15 minutes covered and in low flame; stir occasionally.
Step 3: Once the carrot is cooked and milk absorbed, add sugar and cardamom powder and stir well for 2 minutes.
