Recipe- Carrot pudding is good for health, make it like this and increase the taste!
Since carrot is a seasonal ingredient, it is especially beneficial for winter immunity. It contains significant amounts of vitamin C, which may provide protection against disease. Also, adding dry fruits and ghee to the halwa can increase its immunity. Along with being an immunity booster, dry fruits are also rich in antioxidants and proteins.
Gajar ka halwa is made and consumed in winter. Carrot pudding is very good for your health. Let us know how you can make carrot pudding.
2 tbsp ghee
1/4 cup chopped almonds and raisins
750 grams grated carrot
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
Heat a tablespoon of ghee in a heavy bottom pan, add almonds and raisins, and fry for a few seconds. Once done, take them out on a plate and keep them aside.
Add grated carrots to the same pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Fry the carrots while stirring occasionally for about two minutes.
Add milk and mix well. Let the carrots and milk cook for about 30 minutes on medium heat. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent milk and carrots from sticking to the bottom and burning.
After 30 minutes the milk will be reduced to half or a little more than half.
Continue cooking the halwa on medium heat in this manner until all the milk is absorbed by the carrots and you can see milk solids in the halwa on low to medium heat. This will take anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes.
After this add sugar to it. Once you add the sugar, the pudding will turn liquid as the sugar melts. Keep cooking the halwa till the sugar liquid is absorbed. Do not let the halwa dry out too much as it will continue to thicken as it cools.
