Carrot Halwa

Prep Time – 15 Mins

Cooking Time – 25 to 30 Mins


Carrot – 1 Kg (Grated)

Sugar – 1 Cup

Milk – 400 ml

Cashews – 15

Raisins – 15

Saffron – Few Strands

Ghee – 6 tea spoons

Step 1


STEP 1: In a non-stick pan heat 2 tea spoons of ghee to fry cashews and raisins. Fry the cashews and raisins golden brown. Once done, take the nuts out of the pan. Take a spoon of warm milk and soak the saffron for 5 minutes.

STEP 2: To the remaining ghee in the pan add 2 more tea spoons of ghee and add the grated carrot. Cook till the raw smell goes away.

STEP 3: Once the carrot is cooked add 400 ml of milk and let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the mixture condenses.

STEP 4: Now add the sugar and let it cook till the halwa stops sticking to the pan (if required add 2 more tea spoons of ghee to avoid sticking) and the ghee starts separating from the halwa.

STEP 5: Add the roasted nuts and the saffron milk mixture to the halwa. This is to give the halwa colour and nice flavour.

Mix well and serve.
