  4. Sugar – 1/2 cup
  5. Cashew – 1 tbsp

Wash carrots thoroughly. Grate them in the small hole of the grater or you can grind them.

Heat ghee in a pan. Fry cashew and kismis, keep aside. Add the grated carrot into the pan. Add pinch of salt and fry till carrot becomes soft.

In another pan heat milk. Add this hot milk into the carrot pan. When the carrot absorbs all the milk, add sugar into the mixture and cook for 2 more min. When the halwa is done, sprinkle crushed cardamom powder above it. Add fried raisins and switch off the flame.

Serve hot as this is a hot sweet dish.
