Carrot halwa is my a favorite Indian dessert it is made with a combination of fresh grated carrots sautéed in clarified butter(ghee) slow cooked along with milk and garnish with dry fruits like cashews, almonds and raisins.
4cups grated carrots(I used Delhi red carrots that are available in Indian store but you can use any carrots)
4cups Milk (Preferably full fat milk)
2-3tbsp clarified butter(ghee)
1/4 cup of roasted unsalted nuts(cashews, almonds and raisins)
1tbsp green cardamom powder
1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar or add according to your taste
1)Heat a non stick pan on a low flame with clarified butter(Ghee) sauté the dry fruits and set aside.
2)Add grated carrots and sauté for few minutes , add milk and slow cook on a low flame until ghee starts to separate and milk is evaporated this process would take approximately 1 hr.Stir occasionally during the process.
3)Add sugar, dry fruits, cardamom powder and stir frequently until the halwa turn into a thick and glossy texture.Serve warm with a vanilla ice-cream or cold. eat as is
