Carrot & Cabbage Halwa

I love to make out new dishes by combining sometimes unusual ingredients to make out some of my new dishes...Most of my blogger friends would have already know better much about my way of cooking, i never like to trash any dishes and i always try to find out an alternative way to finish the dish either by baking or by frying, so that my family members will enjoy without asking me any questions about my new culinary inventions..One among those new and unusual combination is this carrot and cabbage halwa, i was planning to prepare some carrot halwa for our weekend snacks in which i have added a quarter cup of finely shredded cabbages along with MTR badam feast, the addition of badam feast to this halwa changes completely the texture, taste, delicious and completely masked the odour of the cabbages i have added in this halwa...I served them this halwa when they were slightly warm and everyone at home relished each and every spoon of this halwa...none found the secret ingredient which i used in this halwa and finally i told that i have combined both carrots and cabbages to make out this halwa,needless to say how they looked at me when i told about the addition of cabbage...


2cups Carrot (grated finely)
1/4cup Cabbage (shredded finely)
1/2cup Condesned milk (sweetened)
1cup Milk
3tbsp Badam feast (MTR's)
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Fried Cashewnuts
2tsp Ghee
Almond flakes

Bring boil together the milk and condensed milk, meanwhile heat few drops of ghee and saute the carrot and cabbage pieces until they get half cooked, add this veggies to the milk and cook in medium high flame until the veggies get well cooked,stir in between... add the badam feast, cardamom powder and cook until the milk get evaporates finally add the remaining ghee and almond flakes, put off the stove..

Serve warm..
