CARROT HALWA

Carrot Halwa is very tasty and easy recipe.I got this recipe from my Sister-In-Law,tasted this
when I went to India.I used to do this on stove top but she told me the easy way of making it in electric rice cooker which made my work easy and the final dish was very YummmmmY.I want to share thi easy making recipe with you all.
Ingridents:
Grated Carrot: 2cups
Sugar:1.5 cups(I used 3/4 cup of sugar for 1 cup of carrot,add according to ur taste)
Cashews:Handful
Kova:3 spns(Optional)
I used half piece of Kalakand sweet which I bought it from our Indian Store
Ghee:3 spns
Procedure:
1.Swtich on the electric rice cooker and add 3 spoons of ghee to it and let it melt and get heated,add cashewnuts and fry them when they are done take them out and put aside.
2.In the remaining ghee add the grated carrot and let it fry for 3-5 mins.Add 3 spns of milk and cover it with the lid and put the rice cooker in cooking mode and wait till it is done(switches from cooking to keep warm mode).If u see that the carrot is not smooth and cooked then put the rice cooker again in the cooking made and wait till it somes down to warm mode.
3.Once the carrot is cooked add the sugar stir well, now we see that the sugar n carrot mixture becomes juicy and liquidy,now again cover it with lid and set it to cooking mode.
4.Wait till the switch comes down to warm mode.
5.Finally add fried cashews and kova and cover it with lid.The warmth of the carrot mixture will help the kova to be smooth n cooked.
6.Serve it hot or chilled according to ur taste.
I enjoy having Carrot Halwa hot yet times I even like to add a scoop of Vanilla to it..Woww..
Enjoy this Heavenly Taste :)
