Gajar Ka Halwa / Carrot Halwa (Microwave method)
A delicious halwa, made of grated carrot, ghee and sugar. Basic recipe from Tarla Dalal !!
Preparation Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 6 min.
Serves : 3 - 4
2 cups / 400 ml (Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity) grated carrot (4 medium sized carrots)
1 tablespoon melted ghee
3 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon milkmaid sweetened condensed milk (my version)
1/4 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
In a microwave safe glass bowl, combine the ghee and grated carrots. Cover with a lid and microwave on HIGH (750 W) for 4 minutes.
Add the milkmaid condensed milk , sugar, cardamom powder and mix well. Cover with a lid and microwave on HIGH (750 W) for 2 minutes (My suggestion - or microwave again for 1 minute on High (750 W) heat until the water dries up and halwa thickens).
