Nice Carrot Halwa (Gajar ka halwa)

This is a traditional indian dessert and popular throughout India. You can have it anytime during the day and it is best when hot. Lasts pretty long, so you can make it and store it in the fridge - heat and eat whenever you want.

Takes about 20-30 minutes to make in a microwave

What you need
1) 2 carrots
2) 2 spoons of ghee
3) 1/2 nuts
4) 1/4 spoon cardamom
5) condensed milk 1/2 cup
6) Sugar 3/4 cup or sugarfree tabs/syrup

1) Grate 2 carrots and put in microwavable bowl. Add 2 spoons of ghee
2) Add condensed milk (1/2 cup) to the bowl and microwave for 8-10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and mix well. Stir every 2-3 minutes.
3)  After the milk is absorbed by the carrots and ghee starts separating
4) Add sugar to taste (3/4 cup), cardamom powder (1/4 spoon), nuts (1/2 cup). Microwave for 2-3 minutes after mixing well

Thats all. For ghee lovers you can add more depending on your needs. If you want to make it healthy, use less ghee and sugarfree tabs/syrup.

It can be preserved in fridge upto 15 days. Make sure you microwave it for 30s-1minute before serving for best taste.
