Carrot Halwa

This is something I wanted to make after seeing Rashmi's blog. I usually make quick carrot halwa with leftover carrots from carrot rice. This time I used fresh carrots to make this halwa. This is the first time I am trying, so I used only one carrot. Here is the recipe I followed.

Ingredients:-
  1. Carrots - 1 or 1 cup shredded
  2. Milk - 2 cups
  3. Sugar - 1 cup
  4. pachakarpooram - a pinch
  5. Cashews - for garnishing.
  6. Ghee - 2 tsp

First take a pan, put the shredded carrots, add a cup of milk and let the carrots cook in the milk under medium flame. When it is 3/4 cooked, add the remaining milk little by little, add sugar and pachakarpooram and let it cook finely. Now add the ghee on top of it and mix it well. Stir continuously and turn off the stove when everything form like a ball. In the mean time, fry cashews to golden brown and add it to the halwa. Since I added more milk, it taste like a pal therattupal.
