Main Equipment Used

Steps In Making

  1. Peal the carrots and then roughly chop them into small pieces.
  2. Put half the carrots in a mixer grinder and grind in short intervals. Do not grind in one go, else the carrots will turn into a paste. Make sure to scrape the sides and the bottom while grinding.
  3. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker and then add carrots. Cook them for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add milk and pressure cook till 4 whistles.
  5. Once done, remove the lid and cook the halwa till the milk is completely absorbed by the carrots.
  6. Add sugar and cook till the sugar melts completely and the gajar halwa is thick.
  7. Now add the ghee and while stirring it continuously roast the gajar ka halwa on medium to low till the ghee is released from the sides and the halwa forms a ball type structure and stops sticking to the pressure cooker.
  8. In another pan add ghee and roast almonds and cashews for 2 minutes or until light golden. Similarly add raisins and cook for few seconds or until they swell up.
  9. Add the roasted nuts on the gajar halwa and serve hot.
  10. Can be stored in the refrigerator for upto 15 days.
