Gajar Ka Halwa

This is a winter favorite in north India. Back Home this was my favorite treat on Diwali. Winter carrots grown in India are bright red giving Halwa a nice color

Gajar ka Halwa

Grated carrot 1 kg
Milk 1 litre
Whole dried milk (mawa) 1/2 Cup
Sugar 1 cups
Ghee 2 tbsp.
Dry fruits (sliced almond and cashew nuts, raisin ) 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp.

Put milk and grated carrots in a heavy base saucepan and bring it to boil. Cook over medium heat until all the milk gets dried up. You should stir the mixture occasionally to prevent any

Add sugar, cardamom powder, 1/4 cup dry fruits and continuously stir for 5-7 minutes. Add ghee and mawa. Stir well and fry on low heat until ghee starts separating.
Decorate with remaining dry fruits.

Serve Hot or Cold.
