Gajar Halwa

Typical Bollywood scene ………!!

माँ : बेटा आज मैंने तुम्हारे लिए गाजर का हलवा बनाया हैं ........

: अरे माँ तुम्हे कैसे पता मुझे गाजर का हलवा पसंद हैं?

One of the famous dialect in 70's in our own hindi movies……………... Cool na ;)………………. Son is asking how his mother knows what he likes………... Actually you should hear this from Shirish Kanekar in one of his stand up comedy show (He is also writer and film critic). But as my hubby says, ignore it.................. 'cinematic justice'.
Ok coming to the point, Today is last day of 2008. I thought I will end this year sweetly. So here comes Bollywood famous Gajar ka halwa.......

Carrots (gajar) - 8 -10
Khoya (khawa) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Desi Ghee - 3 table spoon
Green Cardamom powder - 1 tea spoon
Pista, badam slices for decoration.


Peel wash and grate carrots. Heat the desi ghee in thick-bottomed pan, ass grated carrots and saute it for five minutes. Add milk and put lead on it. Cook on medium heat until carrots are cooked. Now add sugar and grated khoya, cook it till sugar melts and mixes well, stirring continuously. Add pista, badam slices and continue to cook for two minutes more. Serve hot. You can serve hot halwa with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream as a dessert.
