What Do You Need?

2 teaspoons of blanched almonds
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

Method

2. Take a pan and add 1 tablespoon of ghee in it. If you are calorie conscious, then you could reduce it to half tablespoon.
3. After half a minute add the grated carrots and let it cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally, to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan.
4. After 10 minutes add the milk and cream. Allow it to cook for 5-8 minutes.

6. Finally add cardamom powder and blanched almonds to the recipe. Let it cook for another 2-5 minutes.
7. Remove from heat. Allow it to cool.
8. Serve cold.

Tips & Suggestions

1. If possible, use Delhi red carrots rather than English carrots. The reason being, Delhi red carrots are naturally sweeter in taste, hence you can reduce the quantity of sugar in Step No. 5

2. Some people prefer to use condensed milk. You can opt for the same.

3. You can replace cardamom powder with nutmeg powder, as per one's choice.

4. Instead of adding the almonds in Step No. 6, you can opt to add them after the carrot halwa cools down, if you are the one, who loves the taste of crunchy almonds.

5. Milk can be replaced by cream. You got to increase the quantity of cream to 8-10 teaspoons, for the same.
