Gajar Halwa

I like my Gajar Halwa a little thick, not runny. Here's how I make it.

2 cups shredded carrots

2 tbsp ghee - increase for richer flavor

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 cup ricotta cheese

Cardamon pwd

Almonds for garnish

Fry the ricotta cheese on medium heat in a non-stick skillet until all the liquid evaporates. It then resemble mawa in taste and texture.

Separately, fry the shredded carrots in the ghee on medium heat for about 10 mins. Add the condensed milk, mix well and allow to cook another 5 mins. Stir in the ricotta cheese "mawa" and cardamon pwd. Take off heat. Garnish with chopped almonds before serving.

I like to eat it hot, but it can be served cold too.
