Grated Carrots - 3 cups
Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Chopped Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp
If u want to add Saffron Strands than add a pinch
-Heat ghee in a big sauce pan/heavy bottomed pan; add the carrots and sauté for a few minutes.
-Add milk, cardamom powder and sugar. The carrots should be completely immersed in milk.(add saffron also if u like)
-If you feel more milk is required go ahead and add a little more. More milk will not harm the halwa.
-Keep the heat in medium high and monitor the cooking of halwa.
-The milk froth will keep forming and as and when it rises, give it a stir.
-Cook and stir until the entire milk is dry up and the carrot milk mixture is thick.
-Only when the entire milk has become solidified, turn off the heat.
-Now add the chopped cashew nuts.
If u like than Serve hot as it is or with cold vanilla ice cream.
