BM #86 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Here is another sweet perfect for any festive occasion. Here I have used low fat ingredients to achieve a rich dessert. 

I sometimes make khoya and add it instead of adding the milk powder in the halwa. That also tastes good. 
Ingredients - 

Carrots, peeled, shredded 4 cups
Milk 1/4 cup
Milk Powder 2 Tbsp
Condensed Milk 1/2 tin (I used fat free)
Almonds, coarsely crushed 3 Tbsp
Raisins and Cashews, Roasted for garnish

Method Of Preparation -

Pressure cook the carrots and milk for 15-20 min (2-3 hisses). 

In a heated pan, add ghee and condensed milk. Stir gently and let it cook for a few minutes.

Add in the milk powder, crushed almonds and boiled carrots along with the milk.

Keep stirring until the mixture comes together as a single mass. 

We like it a little more grainy. So I stirred for a few more minutes to get the texture we prefer. Remove from heat.

Garnish with roasted cashews and raisins.

Serve hot or cold.

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you
    added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
