Carrot halwa

     There are different types of halwa in india , like wheat halwa,pushinikai halwa, beetroot halwa,thirunalveli halwa..... I have tasted only the above. Once my neighbour  gave me a sweet which is called carrot halwa. It was yummy but since i don't like ghee,i couldn't enjoy the sweet. So i thought i should prepare this when i have time. When i was searching the fridge,i saw 2 big bag full of carrots which are due to date. So i thought this is the time , I should try carrot halwa without ghee. But in this recipe i gave recipe for carrot halwa with ghee.

Ingredients :

Carrots - 4 cup
Milk - 2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Almond ,pista and cherry - Few ( can also add cashew and raisin )
Ghee - 3 tbsp

Recipe :

*  Shred carrot using thin holes in shredder.
*  Chop almond and pista
*  Warm milk in microwave for 2 minutes.

              Take a think bottom pan and add ghee. Fry the almond and pista in the ghee and remove it alone and place it in a plate. In the same pan,add carrot and Stir . Close the pan for few minutes till the carrots are tender,soft and raw smell of carrots goes. Now add the milk and stir for sometime. Cook till the milk get mixed with carrot and absorbed fully by carrots. Now add sugar ( add according to the sweetness of carrot) and stir it . Stir till we get halwa consistency and it is not stick to the pan. We can 1 tsp of ghee now to get that non sticky halwa. Add chopped almond,pista and cherries and mix well. Sweet ,yummy carrot halwa ready.


* Some will use red carrot for making this halwa.we can use that too.
* Add sugar according to the sweetness of the carrot.
* Whenever we halwa, we should use thick bottom pan. Else halwa easily stick to the bottom.
* This halwa wont be like other halwa which has paste like consistency. This halwa will be little coarse texture.
