I hope this is one of the most desirable sweets by all…mine too…here goes the recipe…
Finely grated carrots – 1 1/2 cups, sugar – 1 cup, mixture of milk and water – 1 cup (the proportion may be as you like), cashews- 6, cardomoms – 4, ghee 3 tsp
Peel all the carrots and grate them finely. Pour 3 teaspoons of ghee in a frying pan. Add 6 cashews and powdered cardomoms (4).Fry till you get the smell of roasted cashews.Pour the mixture of milk and water. Add sugar. When the water comes to boil, add 1 1/2 cups of grated carrot and stir slowly and constantly in low heat until the mixture turns into a soft paste. After adding sugar, you may have to cook around 7 – 10 minutes to get the desired consistency for halwa. Do not heat the mixture too long, so as to prevent it from getting hardened. Garnish with almond strips.
You may add condensed milk or fresh khoya for a delicious taste but who are diet conscious, please avoid them.
