After a lovely short break its time to get back to my blogging with this wonderful sweet loved by many. Hope all is well with you guys. I missed you all and could not stop visiting my space but with a very short time always.
This sweet is also prepared with condensed milk or even using khoya. I somehow like to make it this way and that too using Delhi carrots as its so juicy and perfect for this sweet. A very simple and easy to make dish rich with nuts and tastes great. You can increase or decrease the level of sugar to your taste.
Total time taken : 1 hour
Serves – 6
Delhi Carrots - 500 gms
Sugar - 300 gm
Full cream milk - 2 cups
Cardamom powder - ¼ tsp
Ghee or vegetable oil - 2 tbsp
Cashew nuts - 12 nos.
Almonds – 6 nos.
Wash, peel the carrots and grate them thin
In a kadai, add 2 tablespoon of ghee or oil and then throw in the grated carrots and sauté lightly for couple of minutes in low flame. Don’t burn them by keeping the flame high.
Add 2 cups of milk and let it boil on low flame till the mixture is almost dry. At this stage add in the sugar and give it a good mix and let this continue to cook it till all the milk is evaporated. Now you will see the milk has formed small chunks like. Mix in the cardamom powder and put off the flame.
Let the halwa cool down a bit, then add chopped almonds, cashews.
The halwa is ready to serve.
