Carrot Halwa / Carrot Ladoo:
I LOVE CARROTS😍😍!! So anything made with Carrots are Double like for me😃.. My hubby not at all loved carrots before.. But ever since I started cooking for him,he started eating carrots.. nowadays asking me “why can’t you make Carrot thoran( stir fried carrots with coconut),carrot halwa etc”…!!!
All this is because of my continuous attack on him with carrot recipes..😛! So now carrots are a “must have” item in our refrigerator!!And here is an easy Indian dessert recipe-carrot Halwa .. ( too easy to make and please your family😊).Recently i took this to a potluck party at my daughter’s school..and it was done under 30 mins or so..
- Carrot-10-12 medium sized( finely grated)
- Milk-3/4 glass
- sugar-1 cup( as per taste)
- Cardamom -3-4( crushed)
- Ghee-as per taste( forget your diet while pouring ghee😞😋) more ghee -more taste.. But I made it to 3 spoon
- Cashew nuts & raisins- a handful
How to make:
1)keep wok on flame.. Add 1 spoon ghee and saute the nuts and raisins till golden brown..and keep it aside!!
2)now add little more ghee and add the grated carrot..stir well and let it cook for 4-6 mins.. Let it become a bit tender..
3)now add the sugar and again keep stirring for some time..now add half the milk and cook for 6-8 mins again(stir occasionally)!!
4)now add the cardamom and stir well for another couple of mins..
5)now add the rest milk and nuts and cook well.. Keep stirring!!
6)the carrot’s color should change and the ghee must ooze out of it.. That’s when we are allowed to off the flame..
Now serve it hot 😛!! Add 1 scoop of ice cream if wanted..
Also if you make small lemon sized balls out if it, carrot halwa becomes Carrot Ladoo😃!!
So from one preparation , you got 2 forms of food.. Kids would love to eat Ladoos Rather than Halwa..
