A lovely Indian halwa dessert which is rich and creamy. It is based off carrots, milk and assorted nuts. Cashews and pistachios work best.
Altered ingredient amounts. The recipe doesn't say what to do with the raisins so I added them with the carrots. Please, please, please don't add 250g of sugar - I added 2 tablespoons and that was more than enough. - 26 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
This is a very different dessert but we enjoyed it. The toasted nuts were lovely. Like I said in my tweak - please, please, please don't add 250g of sugar - I only added 2 tablespoons & that was more than enough. - 26 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Altered ingredient amounts. In winter season when we have carrots in plenty we make this recipe often. But our ingredients are diffferent. We use double quantity of milk. Like 1 KG carrot. washed peeled and grated and 2 liter full cream milk. In a wolk add milk and carrot and cook on slow fire till the milk evorates and the carrot is completely mixed with the thickened milk. Then add ghee clarified butter say at least four table spoons and keep on frying. After 10 minutes addd sugar as per test and cook till it again thickens. Remove Add nuts of your choice and remove from fire. Serve hot or cool as per your test. - 30 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
