What is there not to like in Carrot Halwa? Okay, there is sugar and the ghee component. But then if they are controlled, we all can indulge once in a while, don't you all agree? So to make it much more healthier, I sneaked in raw papaya and trust me, no one can tell the difference!

That is what I did and the kids polished the bowl leaving me spell bound!!

For Day 6 of BM 10, it is this delectable Halwa. While here check what my fellow marathoners are up to in this edition of Blogging Marathon.

Papaya-Carrot Halwa

Method Of Preparation -

In a non stick kadai / sauce pan or wok, add 1 tsp of ghee and fry the papaya and carrot until the raw smell disappears. (about 5-7 min)

Add sugar, mawa powder, milk and keep stirring until the halwa, while adding the remaining ghee.

Sprinkle cardamom powder and remove from fire when the halwa comes together as a single mass.

Garnish with roasted nuts for a great dessert!
