Hi all...
From quite some time I wanted to start a food blog. Though not a professional at this, I am passionate about cooking and trying new recipes.
All that I post here are those that come out well for me. Its just a compilation of all the recipes that I learn from various people.

So to start with, a sweet dish, my favourite, Gajar ka Halwa!! :)

Fresh Shredded carrot - 2 cups
Milk - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee - 4 tablespoons
Khoa - 2 tablespoon
Cashews and raisins to garnish
Saffron (optional)


Roast the cashews and raisins with ghee and keep them aside.
In a pan, add 3 tblsp ghee and once it melts, add the carrot and saute for a few minutes till there is no raw smell of carrot.
Add milk and cover with a lid. Cook the carrot on a low-to-medium flame (for about 10 mins).
Once the carrot is well cooked add the sugar and saute.
When the sugar melts and the halwa starts leaving the sides, add the powdered cardamom, khoa, saffron dissolved in a little milk.
Garnish with the roasted cashews and raisins.
Khoa adds the flavour for this halwa. If it is not available, you can also use doodh peda! ;)

Ciao till next time! Have fun...Vidya!
