Gajar Halwa in Mcrowave | Carrot Halwa

Ingredients

Carrots (grated) 3-4 big sized (2 katoris of grated carrot)
Sugar 1/2 Katori (you can increase to 3/4 according to your taste)
Milk 1 3/4 Katori
Milk Powder 1 small packet (5-6 tablespoon)
Ghee 2 tablespoon
Dryfruits (chopped) (Almonds, Cashewnut, Pistachio) 1/2 cup
Cardamom Powder (Elaichi) 1 teaspoon

Note

  • My Microwave sets to 900W at P100 (100% power), so the cooking duration may vary with yours. Please use the recipe as a guideline and work out the cooking time as per your MW.

Method

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the ghee at P100 for 45 seconds.
  2. Add the grated carrots, stir and mix and microwave it again at P100 for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Add milk, sugar and milk powder to it. Stir and microwave it on P100 for 12 minutes. Stir the mixture every 2-3 minutes. Keep eye on it.
  4. Add dryfruits in halwa, cover it with lid having some hole (I used the same container that I got with my microwave). Microwave on P60 for another 12 minutes till the carrot is completely cooked and the milk has been absorbed by the carrot.
  5. Sprinkle the cardamom powder.Stir lightly and microwave at P100 for 2 minutes, this time without the cling film. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve hot.

Tips

  • You can use khoya instead of milk powder.
  • If you want low fat, use skim-milk powder and low fat milk.
  • For diabetic people, use low-fat products, with sugar-free powder.
  • Tastes best with the serving of vanilla ice-cream.
