Carrot Halwa Recipe

Hi friends,
                Carrot is a crunchy orange vegetable. Moms like to feed their children because of its health benefits. Carrot is good for our eye sight. Carrot prevents cancer and it has  anti aging nutrients. Carrot gives us a healthy and glowing skin.. Why don't we use such a wonderful vegetable in our diet very often? So try to have Carrots atleast twice a week. We can make carrot juice, carrot milk shake, carrot stir fry, carrot pulao, etc.Today I tried Carrot Halwa. It came out well. Lets see how to prepare the Carrot Halwa.
               



Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 20 min
Serves: 2 persons

Ingredients:
  • Carrot 500g
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • Milk 1/2 cup
  • Ghee 50 g
  • Cashew nuts 
Preparation:
  • Wash the carrots thoroughly.
  • Grate the carrots  and set aside.
 How I made the Carrot Halwa:
  • Take a pan, add the grated carrots and milk into it and cook it in a low flame around fifteen minutes.
  • Once the carrot cooked well, add sugar and saute it continuously.
  • When it reaches the halwa consistency, take another pan and heat the ghee.Fry the cashew nuts in it.
  • Now add them into the halwa and saute it for two minutes.
  • The Carrot halwa is ready to serve.
Note:
  • Do not peel off the carrots, when you gratethem.
  • Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste.
Cook happily! Eat well!!

    1. Many of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in a carrot are commonly
      contained in the skin. So I do not peel the carrot, instead I'll give a nice wash.
      Thank you dear.
