Carrot Halwa

Carrot halwa is one of the traditional sweet in Punjab cuisine....Popularly known as "gajar halwa"... They are simple and Delicious....
Carrots are most healthiest vegetable....



Carrot halwa is one of my favorite dessert.....This can be made in both stove top and as well as in the microwave.....The only difference is it cooks fast in microwave... So I love making it....If I have any unexpected guest to my house.....The only dessert I make is carrot halwa, as all the ingredients are available in my pantry and refrigerator.....



I cook the carrots with milk in the microwave with some flavoring and then add milkmaid to it. How simple is this............Can't go wrong with it..... The same thing can be done in stove top also......




Well this is my contribution to RCI - PUNJAB.... Richa of As Dear As Salt .... is hosting this month's event....All the best Richa.......

Ingredients :



Carrot - 2 cups grated
Milk - 1/2 cup
Condensed Milk - 1 cup
Cardamom - 1 tablespoon
Saffron - Few pinches
Ghee - 2 tablespoon
Toasted nuts - few for garnish( I used almonds)

Procedure :


1. Place the grated carrots and ghee in a heavy microwavable dish and keep it in high for few mins.

2. Now add milk, saffron and cardamom powder to the bowl and cook(in microwave) the carrots until done and all the milk is absorbed (if needed more milk can be added until the carrot is cooked).

3. Now add the condensed milk and cook(in microwave) until the mixture is thickened.

4. Now garnish with toasted almonds.
