(1.00/5 - 1 vote)


- 3 kg red carrots
- 3 kg full-fat milk
- 250 g khoya
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon desi ghee
- 1/2 cup raisins, soaked
- 4 tablespoons almonds


Step 1

Wash, scrape and grate carrots. Discard cores. Cook grated carrots over medium heat in a heavy bottomed pan.

Step 2

In another, large heavy-bottomed pan, boil milk and reduce heat to a simmer. When grated carrots are reduced in bulk and most of their juice has evaporated, stir into simmering milk.

Step 3

Cook, stirring occasionally, for about an hour or until the mixture is a coarse paste. Grate khoya and add to carrotmilk mixture. Cook on low heat until slightly browned. Add sugar and stir until well mixed.

Step 4

Remove from heat when the halwa starts sticking to the bottom of the pan. Drain raisins and stir into halwa when cool.

Step 5

Freeze in appropriately sized portions in freezer-grade polythene bags. Heat just before serving; top with almonds fried in desi ghee until crisp.
