Traditional carrot halwa recipe:

  • Grate 2 medium carrots;
  • Melt 2 table spoons of ghee in a pan (you can replace it with butter if it’s difficult to find ghee in your country);
  • Mix it and cook in low flame, constantly stirring for 3 minutes;
  • Add 2 glasses of milk;
  • Keep constantly stirring, cook until milk evaporates;
  • Add 3-4 table spoons of sugar, honey or condensed milk – to taste;
  • Add a 1 pinch of cardamom powder;
  • Add chopped nuts and dry fruits;
  • Cook for some more time, make sure carrots are ready.

*The main thing in this recipe is cooking in low flame and stirring constantly.

Healthy option:

If you like healthy food like me, you can add no sugar and condensed milk, maybe a little bit of  honey and less butter or ghee (but you can skip them at all if your diet is strict). Like this you will get a healthy dessert!

Bon Appetit!
