Preparation Time :10 Min

Cook Time : 30 Min

Total Time : 40 Min


Serves : 2
  • 284 grams Shredded Carrots

  • 1/2 cup Whole milk

  • 1-2 cups Sugar

  • 1-2 Cups Khoya/Mawa milk powder (I used Mawa milk powder)

  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder

  • 10 Raisins

  • 15 Cashews

  • 3 tbsp Ghee

  • 1 tbsp Ghee for roasting raisens 1


  • Add 3 tbsp ghee in a frying pan. When it is hot, add the shredded carrots & sauté for about 4 minutes.
  • Then sauté for about 4 minutes.  Add milk to the carrots & pressure cook for around 6 whistles. Wait for the pressure to release. Now open the cooker & you should see the carrots softened.    
  • Now add the mawa milk powder,khoya,sugar& mix it well with the carrots & bind them together & cook for a minute. Now you will see the carrots beginning to stick to the bottom of the pressure cooker.
  • At this point, add the sugar & mix well. When you add the sugar, you will see the carrots attain a nice bright red colour.The halwa will once again become liquidy once you add the sugar. On a medium flame, cook till all the water evaporates & the halwa thickens.    
  • In a pan, add ghee. When the ghee gets hot, add cashews & fry till they become golden brown. Remove from the ghee & add it to the halwa. Now add the raisins, when they puff up in the ghee, add them to the halwa along with the ghee.and ready to serve.
