Carrot Halwa -entry for Monthly Mingle



Ingredients:
500 gms carrot shredded,
2 cups milk,
1 cup fresh cream,
Sugar ½ cup or upto taste.
Cardamon powder ,
Raisins .
3-4 tsp ghee.

Method:
Wash and peel the carrot thoroughly and shred it.
In a big pan add ghee and place it on heat, when it is little hot add shredded carrot to it and cook it on high flame stirring continuously . this will burn the water part from shredded carrot and it will turn little more dark in its color. When it is cooked this way, add milk to it and let it again cook on high flame until milk turns in to thick , add sugar, fresh cream and soaked raisin to it and let it cook until all the water part from milk evaporates and it makes small white particles of cream there. Consider it cooked when it is thick enough and all things are mixed well with shredded carrot. Add caramon powder and mix well, turn of the heat and serve it either hot or cold. Tastes best in both ways.
As Me and hubby both don’t like much sweet items , this is a rare case in our home that we make anything sweet like this for us. Since Meeta announced to make something sweet for this month’s monthly mingle, I thought to make this from the fresh carrot available in the market here. And I think was a good idea indeed. Once it turn cool I store it in a air tight jar in refrigerator and hubby like to have just 1-2 spoons of it as desert for him . : )
