Gajar ka Halwa ~ Carrot Pudding

Gajar ka Halwa is probably the most famous and most loved of all Indian Sweets. Rich and delicious this sweet dish is perfect for any occasion. Needless to say we Looove it. 

1 kilo sweet and dark coloured carrots, grated (I measured after peeling and trimming off the ends)
5tbs ghee
1litre milk (I used 2% fat)
450gms sugar
1/2tsp cardamom powder
cashews and raisins for garnish

Heat a little ghee and fry the raisins and cashews till golden. Keep aside.
In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the remaining ghee. Add the carrots and fry till the raw smell has gone and the carrots have changed colour, about 5mins.
Add the milk and cook stirring frequently till all the milk has been absorbed.
Stir in the sugar and continue to cook till thick. The mixture will come together and the ghee will start oozing out.
Remove from heat and stir in the cardamom powder, raisins and cashews.
Serve warm. 
Gajar ka Halwa tastes great with vanilla ice-cream.
