Gajar Ka Halwa (Carrot Dessert)

Photo by Amit Agni
500 gms carrot( I have used Australian orange carrot as I don't get the Indian red carrot here)
1lt milk
12-16 tbsp sugar (Use sugar as per your taste as the quantity of sugar will depend on the sweetness of the carrot)
1 tbsp ghee (Clarified butter)
1 tbsp chopped cashews (You can add more as per your taste)
Grate the carrot,finely.
In a thick bottom pan, melt the ghee.
Add the grated carrot and mix well. Saute for 5-8 minutes on medium to low heat. 
Now pour the milk, stir. Let the milk boil.
Simmer and cook till the milk is reduced to a thick gravy like consistency. Keep stirring in between.
Add sugar and cashews, stir.
Let it cook further. Don't let the milk dry completely.I like to keep some milk in the gajar ka halwa. So when I refrigerate, it will give a nice milky texture.
Gajar ka halwa is ready to serve.
This is how Gajar Ka Halwa is made in my family. Thanks to Mom and Dad for teaching me this wonderful recipe.

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
    the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I
    love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
