Gajar Halwa (Carrot Halwa)

In this Indian halwa, carrots are cooked in sugar, spice, and milk until they become soft and pudding-like. You can serve this warm, sprinkled with nuts, or eat it by the spoonful, straight from the fridge the next day.

8 servings

  1. Melt the ghee in a nonstick pot over medium heat and add the grated carrots. Stir for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the carrots are softened.
  2. Add the milk to the pot and continue to stir until the milk is completely evaporated.
  3. Add in the sugar. The sugar will release a lot of moisture, so keep stirring the mixture until the moisture evaporates. Apologize to your arm.
  4. Then add the milk powder to the pot. Stir to combine and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Then stir in the cardamom powder.
  5. Garnish with nuts if you want. Serve hot or chilled.
