6th recipe:Gajar ka Halwa...

This is a very simple recipe of gajar halwa with minimum ingredients :)

Ingredients:Servings for 4
7-8 Gajar or Carrot
Medium size bottle of Whole Milk
2 cups Powdered sugar(can adjust according to taste)
4tsp ghee (optional)
Deep skillet or Kadhai

1. Grate the carrots finely with a grater.
2. In a Pressure Cooker put all the grated carrots and add just 3/4th cup of water. Give two whistles and let the cooker cool down.
3. In the meantime take a deep skillet or kadhai and pour the ghee in it.
4. Once the ghee melts down pour the milk in it and give it a boil and then just lower the heat in between low and medium .
5. Now put the carrot water mixture in the boiling milk.Also add the sugar.
6. Now just patiently let the whole mixture cook on a low to medium flame. Cooking might take about an hour and a half but the more you cook on a low medium flame the more tasty it becomes but of course the cooking time lenghtens.
7. The final test for seeing whether the recipe is ready or not is to taste the halwa. If you can still chew the carrot pieces that means it needs to be cooked more . If milk is disappearing you can put more of it accordingly.
8. Once the carrot pieces dissolves completely in the milk your halwa is ready.
9. If serving hot you can put put more ghee as it will enhance the rich taste of it.

1. With ghee you can also add some raisins or kismish or any other dry fruit that you prefer.
