No Ghee No Mawa Gajar Halwa

Simply devine. Just keep on eating :-). Eat it cold or hot, you will love it. What makes it different is that it does not contain a drop of Ghee. But it involves a lot of patience as the milk has to reduce on a slow flame.


 

Ingredients

  • 1 Kg Carrot Grated. (do not use a very fine grater as the gajar will be all mashed then)
  • 1 Ltr. Milk. (Alternatively can add Mawa –  But I always made with milk)
  • 1 Cup of Sugar (For more on the sweeter side, add 1/2 cup more)
  • 1.5 teaspoon of Cardamom powder
  • Chopped nuts (Almonds, Cashew, Pistachio)
  • Some nuts for garnish.
  • Heavy bottom pan

 

Preparation

There are 2 methods for this:
Method 1: (I used this method always, until I tried the 2nd method)
  1. Bring the milk to boil in a heavy bottom pan, stirring in between.
  2. Now add the gajar and let them cook together on a slow flame until almost all the milk gets evaporated.
  3. Now add the sugar, this will again make the mixture a little watery. Let it cook again until it is evaporated.
  4. Now add the Cardamom powder and nuts.
  5. Yummy Gajar Halwa is ready. Garnish with nuts and serve.
Method 2:
  1. Bring the milk to boil in a heavy bottom pan, stirring in between.
  2. Reduce the flame to slow and let the milk reduce to alteast half.
  3. In the mean time in a pan or a microwave cook the gajar. I used the microwave, on High,  I cooked the gajar for atleast 15-20 minutes. Stirring in between after every 5 minutes.
  4. The Gajar will be a little tender now. Add this to the milk mixture and allow it to cook on slow gas until the milk gets evaporated.
  5. Now add the sugar, this will again make the mixture a little watery. Let it cook again until it is evaporated.
  6. Now add the Cardamom powder and nuts.
  7. Yummy Gajar Halwa is ready. Garnish with nuts and serve.
