Carrot - 2 grated
Sugar - 5 spoons
Milk - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 2 spoons
Dry fruits - fried in ghee
Method of preparation
Take a kadai and add ghee to it. Once it is hot, add the cashews or dry fruits and keep them aside. In the same ghee add the grated carrot. Keep it on medium flame and keep stirring in between until the carrot in almost done. Because carrot is grated, it should be done much faster. Now add sugar to it. Mix it properly. Once the sugar is melted, add dry fruits and little milk. once the mixture thickens or at least if you see no more liquid then turn off heat and your Gajar ka halwa is ready to serve. I found this method to be fast, easy, yummy to do.
I have tried another recipe which is a little lengthier process (adding grated carrot in milk and then heat it until the carrot is totally cooked). We will get the same taste as compared to lengthier if we add Kowa at the end of the preparation. Good luck and let me know what you think of the shorter version of Gajar ka halwa.
1) you can use khova instead of milk. Add it almost to the end.
