Peel the carrots and grate them.
Soak the grated carrots in the milk and pressure cook.
Heat sugar and ghee in a non stick pan.
Add the pressure cooked carrots and milk. Stir well.
Keep the lid closed in between stirrings, as there maybe some splashes, when the milk and ghee boil together.
When the milk condenses and the halwa begins to thicken, remove from flame.
Garnish with cashews and raisins roasted in ghee.
Alternate method: 1)Chop carrots into small cubes and pressure cook in milk.
Grind this pressure cooked carrots(with milk) into a smooth paste.
Proceed like the first method from step 3 onwards.

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.
