GAJAR KA HALWA..MICROWAVE COOKING
GajarkaHalwa is a favourite sweet for my whole family and they like it to be prepared in a particular way, carrots should never taste raw, hard or too soft. And here in Chennai we dont regularly get those red carrots.This time when my daughter came, it was her first choice, so I had no choice , but to make, since I was busy with other things in kitchen , I decided to make it in microwave, initially my daughter was quite skeptical, but when she tasted it she said..wow:)
Here is the recipe..easy to do.
2oo gm khoya
1tbsp. desi ghee
250 ml. full cream milk( standard will also do)
150 gm sugar or little more as per taste.
2 tbsp.finely chopped cashewnuts and almonds
1/2 tsp cardamom powder..optional.
Peel, wash and grate the carrots. Put the carrots in a microwavable bowl ( I have that small cooker of Milton).add the milk. and put it for 10 minutes in microwave covered.
Take out and check if the carrot is done, if not put it for another 5 minutes.
Then take out and mix khoya thoroughly and put it in the microwave for 7 minutes without covering...By this time it must be dry..if it is not then put for another 3 minutes.
Now add sugar..mix thoroughly, then add the ghee and put it in microwave for another 5 minutes
Your delicious Halwa is ready..garnish it with chopped fruits and cardamon powder before serving.
PS: Take care while taking out the bowl and checking as its very hot
