Here goes the recipe for Carrot Halwa which can be relished either hot or cold.
Shredded carrot - 2 cups
Milk - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Unsalted butter/ghee - 4 tablespoons
Cashews and raisins to garnish
Roast the cashews and raisins in a little ghee and keep it aside.
Boil the milk until it gets reduced to half.This should be done in medium high heat for about 8 to 9 minutes stirring occasionally so that it does not stick to the pan.
In a nonstick pan melt the butter and stir fry the shredded carrot on medium heat for about 5 to 6 minutes so that the carrots leave the raw smell and slightly change the colour..Take care the carrots do not get burnt.
Add the evaporated milk and cook for about 10 minutes until the milk gets completely absorbed.
Add the sugar and stir well.Cook for 3 more minutes and add the cardamom powder and cook till the halwa starts leaving the sides of the pan and the ghee starts oozing out.
Garnish with the roasted cashews and raisins.
