My 100th post - Carrot halwa

Preperation time: 20 mins | Cooking time: 90 mins

I started my blog just as a past time when I came to Glasgow. But now its turned into a passion. My blog becomes a year old, 26th of this month. I am very happy to share my recipes to a global audience. It has been a learning experience for me too. My blogger friends feedback's have only helped me to do better. Thanks a lot to everyone.

In order to celebrate this milestone here is a very famous Indian dessert.

Ingredients

Carrots-1kg
Milk-1ltr
Cardamom powder-1/2tsp
Ghee-3tbsp
Raisins-2tbsp
Cashew nuts-2tbsp
Sugar-450grms

Method
Wash and grate the carrots.
Heat ghee in a non-stick heavy bottom vessel, fry the cashews and raisins. Keep them aside.
Add the grated carrots to the ghee and saute until all the water from the carrots evaporate. Add the milk. Cook on a low flame for 1 hour stirring occasionally. Add sugar, mix well and cook till the sugar has dissolved and all the milk has been absorbed. Add the cardamom powder, nuts and the raisins. Mix well.



Serve cold, hot or at room temperature.
