Pritam’s craving for sweets hasn’t remained hidden from anyone of us. In Bigg Boss we saw him literally plead to cameras in the House for ‘mithaaiyaan’ every now and then. Finally we found out from him about his favorite dessert that would make this Valentine’s even sweeter for him . Pritam,mentioned that ‘GAJAR KA HALWA’ would be something that would make the romantic eve' all the more pyaare and yummilicious! Hmmm, no wonder this simple guy from a small town has made it so big big but still prefers maintaining a desi swaad!
If you like that too and would try to make the same for your loved ones , the recipe goes like this-
1 kg Carrots
1 litre Milk
1 teaspoon Cardamom seeds
3/4 cup Water
3 tablespoons Ghee
2 tablespoons Raisins
2 tablespoons Almonds
2 tablespoons Pistachios
450 grams Sugar
Firstly,the carrots need to be washed and grated. Soak the raisins in water for 30 minutes. Blanch and shred the nuts and keep it aside to add later. Add the grated carrot in boiling water and cook the same for less than 10 minutes. Add milk while cooking the carrots on a low flame. Stir the mixture for an hour and keep adding sugar till its completely dissolved in milk. Add desi ghee and keep it on simmer for less than 5 minutes. You can now add crushed cardamoms and raisins to the mixture to enhance the taste.
Gajar ka halwa is ready to bes served! You can garnish with almonds and pistachios and served either hot or at room temperature.
Tada! Now aren't you dying to eat this quickly with your beau? Go ahead, we ain't gonna stop ya! And if you think you have a much easier recipe too cook this sweet dish, then share with us in the comments below!
