My Desserts: The Gajar ka halwa

I am big fan of Got(game of thrones). Whenever it displays winter is coming I get delighted instead of being frightened. Why ? because -winter is itself cool.
And I am one of those who takes advantage of this chilled weather. The biggest advantage is to - almost freedom to eat anything. This includes freedom to eat sweets and desserts without getting bulky.
And my favourite is none other than is Gaajar ka Halwa and that too self made.
I have learnt this through my mom. He cooks it best. But as live far from her. I try to feed my hunger through mine cooking and I am not a bad cook at all when it comes to desserts and sweets.
Now let's get into the business.
I would try to make Gaajar ka Haywards for two people and keep the same ratio in case of more number of persons. You need fresh carrot 1 kg. Pick the sweetest of carrot from market.
  • 1 kg full cream milk or
  • 200-250 gram of mawa or khoya
  •  50 gram of kismis
  •  50 gram of almond
  •  50 grams of groundnuts if you like
  •  Desi ghee 30-50 gram
  • 50 gram of grinded coconut
Method :
Take the pan which can accommodate your ingredients
First heat the pan and then put ghee into it
Then put crushed carrot in each. You can skip carrot bones for better taste, but I would recommend not to exclude those for nutrition value.
Keep stirring unless your carrot takes a darker colour or remains half.
Then add milk or mawa in as well as chopped dry fruits of your choice.
Keep stirring unless you are unable to find traces of milk or mawa
And it's now ready to serve as hot or chilled as you prefer
One thing you may have noticed that I have not included sugar in it. I like the raw taste of all these in form of halwa.
In case if you do require it sweet you can add 200 gram
In the last stage of halwa
But now let's talk about the person who is health conscious or a diabetic person who a sweet halwa but can't take a bite due for sugar in it
In that case Sugar free comes to rescue you. It tastes pretty close to sugar
