Microwave Carrot Halwa
I made this super easy carrot halwa in microwave for the first day of navrathri and it contains less fat than the original stove top version.I adapted this recipe from Tarla dalal's carrot halwa(stove top recipe)
Grated carrot - 1 1/2 cups
Milk powder - 4 TB Sp
Sugar - 4 Tbsp
Ghee - 2 Tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1tsp
Cashew nut for garnishing
Mix carrot and ghee and microwave for 8 minutes by covering with a lid.
Grated carrots will become soft and cooked.
Add the milk powder,sugar ,stir and microwave for 5 minutes.
At the last minute of the cooking time add the cardamom powder and mix.
At the end of 5 minutes it would have attained a halwa consistency.
Garnish with cashewnuts.
