This post was sitting in my draft section since a very long time. I have prepared this ample amount of time but never really got to right down the measurements. And last week when I prepared this I made sure I am jotting down every single ingredient and measurement and finally got to post it.
Who doesn’t love gajar ka halwa in India or elsewhere, it’s the most popular sweet served in several occasions. Having a scoop of vanilla ice-cream is a greatest combination to have this sweet in my opinion!
Carrots- 6 medium (grated)
Unsweetened khoya- 1/2 cup (grated)
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Ghee or clarified butter- 4 Tbsp
Cashew- 3 Tbsp
Raisins- 2 Tbsp
Cardamom powder- 1/2 tsp
Heat clarified butter in a pan on medium heat, then add cashews and sauté until light golden brown. Add raisins mix for 5-6 seconds and quickly remove the cashews and raisins leaving behind clarified butter in the pan.
Now add the grated carrots and cook them nicely in the ghee (for 8-10 minutes).
Add khoya give it a nice stir and lastly add sugar.
Mix and cook for 6-8 minutes until everything is well combined and comes together. Add in cardamom powder and mix.
Garnish with cashews and raisins!
