Microwave Carrot Halwa

Some dishs have some stories behind them, my carrot halwa have a story too...Yes my first sweet attempt was carrot halwa, i prepared my first carrot halwa when i was doing my college and i did carrot halwa for an evening snack when my mom was out of station, i still remember we relished each and every spoon of this delicious carrot halwa..My first carrot halwa turned out superb delicious and very often everyone at home ask me usually to prepare this halwa whenever they feel like having something as sweet snacks..Its has been a long i prepared carrot halwa and this time i prepared easily in microwave oven for a change...They turned out fabulous and prefect for my sweet tooth...



1cup Carrot (shredded finely)
1cup Milk
1/4cup Sugar
2tbsp Ghee
Cashews or pistachio nuts for garnishing

Take the shredded carrot, milk and sugar together in a microwave bowl and cook for 25minutes in high(sitr in between every 5 minutes) finally add the ghee and cook again for 2-3minutes..take off the bowl and garnish halwa with the cashew or pistachio nuts and serve hot or chilled....

cooking in micro wave saves time and consume less ghee too! and since carrots have sweet taste u have to add less sugar..... Too good.... And for diabetic instead of sugar u may add the sugar free at the end and serve it too...... Thanks priya.

Made this on Diwali night in the microwave for 6 cups of carrot. Came out very well without having to stir it as one would on the hob. Thank you for the recipe.
