The chilli winters are here again. I am sure it’s norm to make gajar ka halwa in each household. And everybody have their own way of making it. Today I am sharing my version of how it was (and is) made at my home.
1kg red carrots shredded for halwa
180ml fresh milk
1/2 cup fresh malai/ cream
Dry fruits of your choice
In a big kadai add carrots and sugar & let it cook.
After 3-4 min sugar has melted and carrots are leaving their juices.
After about 5min the carrots are soft.
Now add milk.
Now cover and cook until all the milk has been cooked down. Keep stirring in between. This will take about 20-30 mins.
Now add malai & cardamom.
Now mix and cook until incorporated. Add the chopped dry fruits.
Keep mixing. Now the only tast at hand is to let it cook until done.
It will come together like this. For a final charred taste I cook it for 5min on high flame till it starts sticking to the bottom.
