Carrot Halwa

A simple and healthy treat. Great for any occasions. The color of this halwa is the most tempting part. How much I eat this, I will always need somemore extra at the last bite. Try out sure and u'll love it.

There are recipes which use condensed milk instead of milk and sugar. I've never it but this sure is delicious. To speed up the process, u can pressure cook the carrots too. But the grated texture of carrots will get mashed up in that procedure.


Juicy orange carrots, grated - 3 cups
Water - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1/2 litre
sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cashews - 1 tbsp
Raisins - 1 tbsp
elaichi powder (cardomon) - 1/2 tsp


Heat Ghee in a pan and roast the cashews and raisins one after another. To this add the grated carrots and saute till the raw smell goes off and add water. Close it and cook for 5 mins on medium flame

Add the milk after five mins and mix well. Once the milk comes to a boil, slghtly reduce the flame and let it keep boiling and get thick well. Keep stirring occasionally.

Once the milk is almost half reduced, add sugar and continue the heating and stirring.

Continue on low heat till the mixture collects in a soft ball and ghee oozes out. Add cardamom powder and mix well and turn off the flame.

Carrot halwa is ready to serve.
