Gajar Ka Halwa

WISHING U ALL A HAPPY AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2015
Gajar ka Halwa is a traditional and a famous Indian sweet dish, mainly of North India, but popular all over. During winters, occasions and festivals, gajar ka halwa is generally made. 
I have made this halwa with orange carrots with basic simple traditional method.

Ingredients:
Carrots grated, 1 big cup { 4 carrots}
Milk 3/4th cup
Sugar 3/4th cup
Raisins few
Cashewnuts few, chopped
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Ghee 1 tsp

Method:
Keep grated carrot and milk ready.
Chop cashewnuts.
In a pan heat ghee. Fry cashew nuts for a minute, until light brown and remove it and keep it with raisins aside.
{I did not fry raisins as I dont like it}.

In the same pan, add grated carrots and saute for a minute or two.
Add milk. Mix and allow carrots and milk to get cooked, keeping the flame very slow. Milk will start boiling and start to get combined with carrots.Carrots will become soft. Keep stirring occasionally, until milk gets evaporated totally. 

Now add sugar. Mix well. Sugar will start to melt. Stir and cook until everything totally gets dried. Soft, tasty gajar ka halwa is almost ready.

Now add fried cashew nuts, raisins and cardamon powder and mix well for a minute or two. 

Garnish with rasisns / chopped almonds / cashews, as per your wish.
Enjoy....
