I tried this and my whole family enjoyed it. Delicious recipe. I added cardamom also when i pressure cook the carrots as mentioned above. There are some splashes, when the milk and ghee boil together which made by kitchen little dirty, but the halwa was yummeeee...!!!

It was a real simple recipe. I tried it out for the first time and my husband really enjoyed it, though he had never had a sweet tooth. In addtion to it, you can place the carrot halwa in an ice cream cup, first place a thick layer of the carrot halwa and then top it with a sccop of Rum and Raisin Ice cream from Baskin Robbins. It tastes simply good. It gives it a real rich taste and can be served for special occasions, just to indulge yourself into something rich.

this is too good.... there is another version of it....grate the carrots and fry it in ghee-5 or 6 tbsp....till u feel the fresh smell of carrots is gone...boil milk and sugar...till milk reduces to half....add the milk to the carrots...cook it till ghee comes out.....can add cashew or saffron to this.....u will get a good crispy texture....
