Gajar halwa (Carrot Halwa) with milk powder

A must have during winters- my weak point, can be eaten warm with vanilla ice cream.

  1. 5 carrots (grated)
  2. 8 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
  3. 1 cup milk powder (or ½ cup khoya)
  4. 1 cup sugar or (as required as per the sweetness)
  5. sliced almonds
  6. sliced pistachios
  1. In a heavy bottom saucepan add the 6 tsp ghee, grated carrots, sugar. cook until carrot reduce. for the above quantity it may take 12-15 minutes. now add the milk powder (or khoya), stir for 5 mins. Add the remaining ghee, cover the saucepan with lid, let it cook completely. this may take another 10 minutes depending upon the quantity.
  2. Now the halwa is reduced/ thickened add the sliced almonds and pistachios
  3. Serve hot or cold. If you serve it hot it goes well with vanilla ice cream
