BM #86 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Here is another sweet perfect for any festive occasion. Here I have used low fat ingredients to achieve a rich dessert. 

I sometimes make khoya and add it instead of adding the milk powder in the halwa. That also tastes good. 
Ingredients - 

Carrots, peeled, shredded 4 cups
Milk 1/4 cup
Milk Powder 2 Tbsp
Condensed Milk 1/2 tin (I used fat free)
Almonds, coarsely crushed 3 Tbsp
Raisins and Cashews, Roasted for garnish

Method Of Preparation -

Pressure cook the carrots and milk for 15-20 min (2-3 hisses). 

In a heated pan, add ghee and condensed milk. Stir gently and let it cook for a few minutes.

Add in the milk powder, crushed almonds and boiled carrots along with the milk.

Keep stirring until the mixture comes together as a single mass. 

We like it a little more grainy. So I stirred for a few more minutes to get the texture we prefer. Remove from heat.

Garnish with roasted cashews and raisins.

Serve hot or cold.

  5. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you
    added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website
    could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Awesome blog!
