Recipe Ingredients for Gajar ka Halwa (Carrot Halwa)

2 cups carrots, shredded
2 cups skim milk
1/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons smart balance light
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 almonds, chopped and roasted (for garnish)

Recipe Directions for Gajar ka Halwa (Carrot Halwa)

  1. Roast the nuts and set aside for the garnish.

  2. Boil the milk on medium-high heat in a non-stick pan until it is reduced to about to 1 cup. Keep stirring the milk often so the milk does not burn. Set aside.

  3. Melt the butter in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the shredded carrots and stir-fry for about seven to eight minutes. The carrots should be tender and slightly changed in color. Add the milk and cook until the milk dries. This will take about eight to ten minutes. Next add the sugar and stir-fry for another three to four minutes until the halwa starts to leave the side of frying pan. Garnish with cashew nuts.
