Gajar (Carrot) Halwa

Gajar ka HalwaCarrots are naturally sweet, so this dessert needs just a little added sugar. To get all the Indian flavours, Gits Kulfi Mix added at the end works wonders. I've also used Gits Rasmalai Mix with good results. Make your own at home by combining Carnation Instant Dry Milk with sugar to taste, cardamom powder, ground almonds and a few drops of Kewra Essence (extract from pandanus flowers) or 2 teaspoons of rose water.

4-5 large carrots, peeled, chopped and grated in food processor
1 pkg. Gits Kulfi or Rasmalai Mix
1 cup golden raisins
1 stick butter


Cook grated carrots and raisins with butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until carrots are cooked and dry.Add Gits mix, stir well and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring continuously.Garnish with sliced almonds and serve hot or chilled as a dessert.
