  • 1/4th cup water.
  • 1 pinch saffron (soaked in the water)
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder.
  • Edible silver foil for garnishing (optional)
  • Grate khoya and keep aside.
  • Combine carrots and milk in a large heavy based pan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Lower the heat and cook the carrots, stirring constantly until all the milk thickens up.
  • Add ghee & khoya.
  • Sauté for a few minutes.
  • Add sugar.
  • Continue to cook and stir the carrot mixture till it starts combining up.
  • Remove from heat when still moist.
  • Stir in the saffron, cardamom powder and almonds, reserving a few for garnish along with silver foil.
  • Reheat carrot halwa just before serving with a little milk.
  • If not serving immediately refrigerate carrot halwa and re-heat and serve when desired.
Handy Tip:
  • If u dont have khoya, use 1 cup whole milk powder mixed with 1 tsp ghee and 1-2 tbsp water to get a dough like consistency.
  • This makes 100gms of khoya.
