Originally uploaded by annuraadha

Carrot halwa is a famous Indian sweet made from carrot and sugar - not to mention the generous amounts of ghee, milk and cashew.


1 measure grated carrot
1 measure sugar
2-3 spoons of ghee
Milk - required just about to cook carrot
6 - 10 cashewnuts


Cook the grated carrot in a vessel along with milk. The milk should immerse the carrot and must be just enough to cook the carrots. (Don't worry if the quantity of milk is more - continue cooking). This will take about 15 to 25 mins depending on the kind of carrots. once the carrot is cooked, add the measured amount of sugar and stir the dish. Add 1 or 2 spoons of ghee and continue cooking till the dish becomes almost dry.

Transfer the dish into a serving bowl and decorate the cashewnuts (which is roasted to a mild pink color in ghee). Don't forget to relish!
