Gajar Halwa/Carrot Halwa

Both my kids love carrot Halwa. It's been a while I didn't get a chance to make this Halwa. I found Delhi Red Carrots and was really tempted to make Halwa using them as it's a beautiful color and they are really juicy.
Final outcome of this Halwa was just amazing. Loved it.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes 
Cook Time: 50 minutes 
Serves : 5-6


Grated Carrot: 4 cups (1 kg)
Ghee : 2 tablespoons 
Milk: 4 cups
Khoya/Khova; 2/3 cup
Sugar : 2/3 cup
Cardamom powder : 1 teaspoon 
Nuts : 1/3 cup (cashews, almonds and pistachios)


Heat ghee in a pan and add grated carrots and sauté for 5-6 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add milk, mix well and bring it to a boil. Cook until all the water and milk is evaporated. It too me 40 minutes. (It depends on the carrots)
Keep stirring occasionally and make sure to scrape the sides and the bottom.
Add Khova and stir to blend. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add sugar and let it melt, stir frequently.
Add cardamom powder and let the halwa thicken. (It should take another 4-5 minutes)
Turn off the stove. Heat ghee in a small pan and fry almonds and cashews.
Add them and pistachios to the halwa and stir.
Serve warm or cold.
