Carrot Halwa Recipe - Gajar Ka Halwa using Condensed Milk



I wanted to make carrot halwa using condensed milk for very long time. I have tasted this before, and it was delicious..



I have already shared a basic carrot halwa recipe in this blog. This is a special version and it was yum. I loved it more that that orginal version. Since this has condensed milk it has a milky khoya taste to them.


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 45 mins
Serves: 6 

Ingredients:

Carrot - 4 large grated finely
Milk - 500 ml
Ghee - 1/4 cup + 3 tblspn
Cashews, Almonds, Raisans, Pista-3 tblspn chopped(I used Badam)
Sugar- 1/4 cup or to taste
Condensed Milk - 1/2 cup
Cardamom / Yelakai - 1 tsp powdered

Method:

Heat 1/4 cup ghee in a kadai. Now Add in grated carrot and fry for 5 mins..

Pour in milk and bring that to boil..

Simmer the flame and cover it with a lid..Let this cook for 15 mins until the carrot is cooked through and milk is evaporated.

Now add in sugar and condensed milk and mix well.

Cook this whole thing for 10 mins till the mix leaves the sides.add in cardamom as well.

Let this cook untill the halwa gets thickened..

Now heat the remaining ghee. Fry badam or any nuts till golden.

Add in the nuts and mix well..Cook this until the halwa leaves the sides of the pan..

Switch off the flame and serve hot or cold.

    Aarthi you can use Kova. It will give more taste than condensed milk.

  4. Hi Aarthi ! Dish looks wonderful will definitely try it ! Once doubt can we completely use condensed milk instead of little bit of sugar ? Will the taste differ ?
