    Gajar Ka Halwa

    Preparation Method

    Grate the entire Gajar/ Carrot and put it in a bowl. Then take a deep Frying pan of 3 liters/ Kadai and pour the ghee into it. Now add the Carrots into the ghee and stir the Carrots till they become slightly red in color. Once the carrots turn red add the milk to the carrots. Stir the mix constantly and keep the gas at its lowest so that the milk dosen't come out. After 10 minutes add the sugar and the dry fruits to the mix. Keep on stirring constantly till the milk gets dried up.

    It takes about 30 - 45 minutes for the Gajar ka halwa to get prepared. Don't make haste and don't increase the flame, otherwise the halwa will loose it flavour. Once the entire milk gets dried up, serve hot. It also tastes good when not hot.
