Gajar Ka Halwa
6 cup grated carrot
¼ cup milk
½ cup ricotta cheese or unsweetened khoya
1 ½ cup sugar
3 tbsp ghee
1 pinch saffron
¼ tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp cashew nuts
1 tbsp almonds (slivered)
¼ tsp saffron
1 tbsp raisins
Pressure cook the carrot with milk and saffron.
Under medium heat, melt half the portion of ghee in a wide non-stick pan. When the ghee is
slightly heated up, add the cooked carrot mixture and sugar.
The sugar would melt and make the mixture look extra watery. Continue to cook until all of the
liquid disappears completely.
Now, add the ricotta cheese or khoya and blend well with the carrot. Cook for a few more
minutes, add cardamom powder and turn off the heat.
In another pan, heat the remaining ghee. Tip in cashew nuts and raisins and fry until they turn
golden brown and the raisins become plump. Slather them on the halwa.
Serve warm. Top it with some slivered almonds and a few strands of saffron just before serving.
