WISH YOU ALL A VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🍾🥂
Since Diwali made so much desserts and relished too. Now how can I skip closing of this year without any dessert😋😋.
Made GAJAR KA HALWA to good bye this year and welcome the new one🥰. Since childhood have seen my mom making this on 31st of every year and we used to enjoy this with Doordarshan’s new year program 😇.. Golden moments 🥰.
Actually I make gajar ka halwa in 2 different styles.. all depends upon my mode of time I have and mode of mood I carry😂.
This is the proper traditional method.. the other one will share soon😍👍🏻.
Now this much of halwa can be served to 15 people in dessert mode.. I know I know this is dessert but why I mentioned dessert mode because I eat in meal mode😆.
1 kg carrots.. washed, peeled off and grated.. for grating have used my processor
1 ltr full cream milk
Khoya of 1 ltr full cream milk
1.5 cup sugar.. I prefer mildly sweet but you can go for 2 cups if require more sweetness
125 gms ghee or clarified butter
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Few chopped almonds, pistachio and cashews
Take grated carrot and 1 ltr milk in a wide and deep vessel. Boil once at high and then minimise the flame to medium and let it boil till all the liquid evaporates. If you wish to cover the vessel, minimise the flame to lowest otherwise the liquid with carrots may spill out. What I did.. I didn’t minimise the flame at medium or low.. just cooked it at high but uncovered. As I was preparing dinner too so was handling this vessel easily. Keep stirring in between.
As the milk evaporates completely, add khoya and sugar. Raise the flame high. Mix well. Keep stirring and again let the liquid released from sugar and khoya gets evaporated.
Now pour the ghee. Real labour starts here😁💪🏻. Switch the flame to medium and keep stirring until you can see the ghee is getting released. It takes about 15-20 minutes. The red colour of the halwa you get here exactly.
Add cardamom powder and dry fruits. Mix well.
Serve hot with some chopped dry fruits on top😋.
Do other works too but KEEP COOKING TOO😁👩🏻🍳.
