Im back home in chennai for a month. My daughter seems extremely overjoyed running around the place and examining her old toys.... everything is the same. Only she has grown bigger!:)
What better way to celebrate.....than a gorgeous looking carrot halwa?? Best when served hot with some vanilla icecream.............Ahhhhhhhhhh..........Heaven!;)

4 cups carrots, grated
3 tbsps ghee
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
a pinch of cardamom powder
5 almonds, skin peeled and chopped
8 raisins
8 cashewnuts, halved

  •  heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a non stick pan. fry the nuts till slightly browned. Add the raisin and then drain.
  • In the same pan, add the rest of the ghee and saute the grated carrots for a few minutes till the raw smell goes.
  • Add the milk and slow cook the carrots. This might take long. Cook, till the carrots have absorbed the milk.
  • Add the sugar and stir. The sugar wil give you a nice glaze. keep stirring so the bottoms dont catch.
  • Add the cardamom powder and stir till the mixture has come together.
  • garnish with fried nuts.

  • make sure you use a non stick pan. It really helps
