After a very long time I made this carrot halwa to send as my entry for Hima's WYF - Desserts. The last time I made this sweet was in October last year and again after a little more than one year I made this. The reason I just cannot stop myself from eating this wonderful sweet.So,the only way to stop myself is stop making it. Another worst part in making this sweet for me is grating the carrots. This time,I wanted to participate in Hima's event so I pulled myself for grating even though it was only for 4 big carrots. Rather than the old procedure of cooking carrots in milk for long time ,this time I made it quick and easy and equally tasty .
I fried 1.5 cups of grated carrot in 1 tsp ghee in a microwave safe bowl and then added 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk and cooked on high in microwave for 10-12 Min's,stirring in between. Add a pinch of cardamom powder and garnish with chopped nuts after frying them in ghee.I skipped the last part . I was little hesitant to send this to Hima today for two reasons.One the last date for event was over on November 25Th itself and second thing photo did not come out well today.Hope hima accepts this late bird's entry
