Christmas is over :-( . Hope you all had a good time enjoying all the goodness this festival brings, not to mention good food, gifts, parties and so on. I had a good time too and am having a good time now as well, shopping around in the big sale season! I tell you I love shopping and I do not know many people who do not :-)!
The blogosphere is filled with recipes of Christmas goodies and it made things more festive. May be I will share them sometimes later. Today, I am sharing this Halva which is an all time favourite in my household especially during winters. This Carrot Halva is the microwave version. I had posted the conventional one long back. You can check the recipe here.
This is probably going to be my last post this year.. Lets end it with this sweet dish! Wishing you all the very best in the coming year!
Coming back to today's recipe:
2 cups shredded carrots.
1 tbsp ghee
½ cup milk.
¼ cup sugar or less.
A few strands of saffron.
2 cardamom pods crushed.
Almond flakes and chopped pistachios to garnish.
1. Add the carrots to a safe microwave bowl and add ghee. Give a good stir so that the ghee is nicely coated on the shredded carrots.
2. Add milk, crushed cardamom, saffron and sugar and mix such that all the carrots is covered by it.
3.Microwave on a high for 3-5 minutes and stir and microwave again for 3-5 minutes.
4. Follow this cycle till done. Mine took 20 minutes. If you are making a lesser amount it will be done quicker and also time differs from microwave to microwave. So adjust accordingly.
5. Finally, garnish with almonds and pistachios. Serve warm or cold.
Sending this off to my event - Winter Warmers held here.
