* Carrot Halwa *

1/2 kg red carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 ltr full-cream milk
1 green cardamon, peeled
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar, depending on taste
2 tbsp cream
1 tbsp cashewnuts, chopped
1 tbsp raisins
1 to 2 tbsp desi ghee (optional)

In a large non-stick saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Add the
grated carrots and cardamon seeds and bring to a boil.
Lower the flame to medium and cook, stirring frequently, till
the liquid is almost evaporated. Be careful that the milk does
not boil over.
Then turn the flame to low, and add the cashewnuts and raisins.
Add the sugar and cream, and mix well.
Stir constantly and cook till the sugar is dissolved and the
halwa is almost dry. Add the ghee, mix well and cook for 2-3
Remove to a serving dish and garnish with cardamon powder and
nut flakes. Serve hot or cold.
