  • First, peel the skin of carrots. Carrot halwa tastes great when prepared with red carrot. However, we don't get red carrot, so used normal carrots.
  • Later, grate the carrot into long threads as possible and transfer to a kadai. Add a tbsp of ghee and saute for 3 minutes. This helps carrots to cook fast and also retain their shape even after cooking.
  • Add condensed milk, half cup of milk, a pinch of salt and mix well. Note, we are adding milk just to cook carrots.
  • Add cardamom powder and get to boil. Keep stirring occasionally making sure carrots are uniformly cooked and doesn't get burnt from the bottom. Simmer for 5 minutes or till the milk is evaporated completely. Once the milk evaporates, the carrots will be almost cooked.
  • Add cashew nuts and give a good mix. Remove it from the flame.
  • Serve carrot halwa prepared from condensed milk garnished with nuts.
