I made this sweet for all my dear friends in the blog sphere, who visit me every day, care, share and comment on all my recipes weather good or bad no matter what. I am so glad that I am among you lovely people.
I give this treat to all my lovely friends in the blog sphere on the occasion of my birthday.
2cups grated fresh baby carrots.
2-3tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
1/3tsp crushed green cardamom
7-10 cashews and raisins
Almonds to garnish
In a heavy bottomed pan add ghee and when it melts add grated carrots. I use food chopper to chop the baby carrots. Makes job easy. Carrots can also be crushed in blender without adding water to small pieces. Fold the ghee and carrots together, cover it with lid and let it cook on low heat for about 20 minutes.
Add sugar and crushed cardamom to this and mix well. Let it stay in medium flame till the moisture is evaporated.
In a separate pan, fry cashews and raisins till golden brown and add to the Halwa. Yummy Gajar ka halwa is ready. Garnish with Almonds or Pistachios.
