Gajar Ka Halwa

Today I made Gajar-ka-Halwa, an Indian dessert served during winter times when carrots are easily available. It may not be the most difficult of dessert to make, but the recipe I used may be the easiest available.

1000 gms Carrots: Grate it.
400 gms Sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp Ghee (saturated fat). Can also use unsalted butter.
Resins, Almonds & Cardamoms: To garnish.

Grate the carrots. Heat the ghee/butter in a good size vessel.
Add grated carrots to the ghee/butter.
On medium heat keep stirring the carrots in ghee/butter taking care that it does not stick (approx 15-20 mins).
Once the carrot reduces to half its quantity, add condensed milk and keep stirring for another 15-20 mins.
Garnish with resins, almonds and cardamoms.
Ready to serve.
