1 kg fresh carrots, grated

1 liter full-fat milk

1 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)

4-5 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

A handful of chopped nuts (almonds, pistachios, cashews)

Preparation Method:

Sautéing the Carrots: Heat a heavy-bottomed pan or kadhai over medium heat. Add ghee to the pan and allow it to melt. Incorporate the grated carrots and sauté them for approximately 5-7 minutes until they begin to soften and emit a fragrant aroma.

Simmering with Milk: Pour the milk into the pan containing the sautéed carrots. Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure even distribution. Allow it to simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

Thickening the Mixture: As the milk reduces and thickens, the carrots will gradually absorb its creamy essence. This process may take around 30-40 minutes. Consistently scrape the sides of the pan and stir the mixture to prevent burning.

Infusing Sweetness: Once the carrots are tender and the milk has substantially reduced, introduce granulated sugar and ground cardamom to the pan. Blend the ingredients meticulously to ensure uniform sweetness and flavour infusion.

Final Touch: Continue cooking the halwa until it achieves a luscious pudding-like consistency, signifying the harmonious amalgamation of flavours. Remove the pan from heat, heralding the culmination of the cooking process.

Garnishing and Presentation: Sprinkle a generous handful of chopped nuts atop the halwa, adding a delightful crunch and visual allure. Serve the Gajar Ka Halwa piping hot or warm, allowing its decadent flavours to tantalize the senses.

In the realm of culinary delights, Gajar Ka Halwa reigns supreme as a testament to the artistry and heritage of Indian cuisine. With its velvety texture, aromatic spices, and sumptuous sweetness, this revered delicacy transcends mere dessert and becomes a cherished tradition shared among families and communities. So, embrace the warmth of tradition and savour the richness of Gajar Ka Halwa, a culinary masterpiece that beckons the soul with every decadent bite.
