Carrot Halwa / Gajar ka Halwa

Here comes one of the easiest and sweetest dishes rich in Vitamin A, thus good for eyes and a kiddo favourite too! Try this out!

Carrot : 1 kg
Sugar : 1/2 kg or as per ur preferences
Full Fat Milk : 1 litre
Ghee : 3 tbspn
Crushed cardamom : 5 nos.
Dry fruits (cashewnuts, raisins, badam, pista / almond) : 1 cup
Orange or red colour : if required
Condensed milk : 1 tbspn ( if required)

Are u ready? This is how we go; Clean the carrots, scratch off the skin and grate them. Take a heavy bottomed pan and pour 2 tbspn ghee into it. Add the carrots and saute it for about 2-3 minutes. Now add milk (mixed with a few drops of colour if required) and sugar and cook covered in low flame until the carrot gets cooked and the milk gets completely absorbed, making the mixture thick. Stir occasionally in order to avoid sticking to the bottom. Keep on adding ghee until the mix is not sticky or till the ghee separates. Add crushed cardamom and mix them well. Take another pan n pour the remaining ghee and fry the cashews n raisins and add to the halwa along with the ghee. U may also garnish it with grated badam, pistachios or almond.

Note : U may add condensed milk along with 1 litre milk if u donot have full fat milk or if ur towards the sweeter side.
