Carrot halwa

Love is in the air. Like every year I try my level best to cook something special on this day for my loved one. Today's recipe is all about showing my love in the form of this recipe to my daughter.

Happy Valentine's day! I hope all of you are having a great day with your loved ones.


5 carrots - Wash, peal the skin and grate.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk (optional)
1/4tsp  of cardamom powder
silvered almonds or cashews for garnish
2tbsp ghee/clarified butter


In a heavy bottomed pan add 1tsp ghee and grated carrot.  Sauté grated carrot for 5 mts and cook carrot covered with lid(stirring occasionally every 2 to 3 minutes. Do not forget to stir or else carrot will burn). Once carrot is semi cooked add milk and let carrot cook in milk (If you want to skip adding milk, add 1/4 cup water instead of milk).Do not forget to stir every 2 or 3 minutes. Once carrot cooked completely and milk is evaporated, add sugar, remaining ghee and cardamom powder and let it cook. Once carrots absorbed sugar and becomes like roti batter/bread batter remove from heat and garnish with silvered almonds or cashews(If you are garnishing with cashews make sure to sauté cashews in ghee)
