Carrot Halwa

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!! Yea, yea I know I'm a little late. I was waiting to post something sweet as my first recipe of the new year and I finally found some time to make the following. Sorry about the picture, it was the best my camera could do!!


4 Carrots -- grated finely
1 cup Milk
5 tbsp Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Ghee - 3 tsp if it's already melted
Optional Garnishings (I used Raisins, Cashews and Almonds)


Heat Ghee in a pan and add in any garnishing items you want to use. Once all the nuts brown slightly remove them from the heat.
Add milk and the grated carrots to the ghee. Let the milk come to a boil. Now add in the sugar and let everything come together on a medium-low flame.
It is important to keep it on a low flame, otherwise the carrots won't cook properly.
Once the mixture thickens, take it off heat and add in the nuts and raisins.
The whole cooking process might take about 20 minutes.
Serve hot or cold, it's good either way!!
Be sure to refrigerate unused portions.
NOTE: The nuts will continue to look while they are hot, so take them out before they brown completely or you'll have burnt nuts.
