The traditional method of making carrot Halwa is to grate it and add with Khova or milkmaid. But tried a new method today. It did turn out to be yummy and delicious.

Carrot - 1 Kg
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 litre
Cashew Nuts - 8 to 12 nos
Ghee - 1/4 cup

Steam the carrots in pressure cooker and grind them to a fine paste. Break the cashew nuts and fry in a tbsp of ghee.

Boil the milk and reduce it to 3/4th of the original quantity. Add the ground paste and mix well with the milk. (Do not cover the vessel, as the mixture will definitely overflow, even if you keep in medium flame). When the mixture thickens add the sugar (this will make the mixture a little watery). Keep stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Add ghee little by little and keep stirring. The mixture have to thicken and should not stick to the sides of the pan. Add the fried cashew nuts and stir for a few more mins. Remove from flame and let it cool. Store in an airtight container.
