( CARROT HALWA )
A very simple dessert and healthy too !
Great with vanilla ice cream.
Carrots - 500 gms Peeled,washed and grated
Milk - 1 Litre
Sugar - to taste
Cardamom powder - 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ( more if you prefer )
Ghee (clarified butter ) - 4 Tbsp ( less if you want to cut down on fat )
- Heat ghee in a non stick pan. Add carrots. Stir for a minute.
- Add milk.
- Cook in milk on medium to low heat until thick consistency.Keep stirring every few minutes so that it does not stick to the pan.
- Add sugar. Mix. Cook further until moisture evaporates.
- Add cardamom powder just before removing from the fire.
- Mix well.
If you like, you can add kesar (saffron). It should be soaked in a little bit of milk and then rubbed with fingers to release the colour and fragrance.
Pour it in right at the end when you add cardamom.
