In Desserts Giveaways Sweet Treats

Carrot Halwa n Giveaway

I was pleasantly surprised when my last post on my dashboard read as 99... Amazed... time just flew and it reminded that I had to blog about my 100th post soon. The journey was really tough starting from simple spice powder to very complicated Kashmiri pulao.. I still remember Hari from Blendwithspices calling me to continue with my blogging when I left everything midway to concentrate on job. I was away from blogging for about 2 year and then suddenly when I logged in to blogger I saw that my blog was fully energetic with readers pouring in their comments and my blog breathing in high spirits... This brought me back to blogging again. Now I am happy to post my 100th recipe and announce giveaway.

I wanted to celebrate my Birthday and blog post with a sweet treat and I learnt this sweet carrot pudding from my mom. Initially she told me that there are 3 versions of carrot halwa based on the ingredients involved in preparation.  I selected the one that has milk as one of the ingredients.

Carrot Halwa ~ Sweet Carrot Pudding

Carrot - 1 Cup (grated)
Ghee - 2 tbsps
Sugar - 1/2 cup (adjust as per taste)
Milk -  1/4th cup
Roasted nuts-  handful
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp


Take a heavy bottomed pan and add ghee in it. Roast cashews, almonds and raisins until golden brown in color. Remove them from the pan and keep them aside. To the same pan add grated carrot and cardamom powder. Saute this mixture for 5-6 mins. Now add milk and mix all the ingredients well. Keep a lid on the pan and allow it to cook on low flame. Keep checking the status of this mixture.

You need to wait till carrots completely absorb milk and become a soft mixture. Add sugar and keep stirring this mixture till it leaves the sides of the pan and becomes goeey. Add roasted nuts. Mix all the ingredients and remove this mixture onto a plate greased with ghee and allow this mixture to set. You can serve it hot or serve it cool with ice cream.
