Quick Gajar(Carrot) Halwa
4 cups shredded carrots
½ cup sugar(or to taste, keep in mind the sweetness of carrots as well)
1 pinch of cardamom powder
2-3 tbsp ghee
¼ cup milk
¼ cup khoya(optional, if you don’t have khoya, use milk powder with a bit of milk)
Chopped almonds, pistachios for garnish(optional)
Cook shredded carrots in microwave for about 6 minutes or till almost cooked.
Now transfer the carrots to the sauce pot.
On medium heat, cook carrots with sugar till sugar dissolves and leaves no residues.(at this point, check the sweetness, you can add more sugar if you want to.)
Now add khoya(if using), milk, cardamom powder and cook till milk evaporates.
