Thank you friends for all your wishes and blessings . We are doing good . Since it is my 402th post , i want to celebrate with a sweet . I wanted to prepare this before my lil one wakes up ,hence i made this in pressure cooker . Taste of halwa will be the same as you do in pan.

Here is the recipe ,


Grated Carrot - 3 cups
Sugar - 3 cups
Boiled milk - 1 cup
Cashews - 10 numbers


1) Pressure cook the grated carrot with boiled milk for 2 whistles . Allow the steam to leave .
2) Open the lid , cook in slow flame if it still has milk in it . Cook till all the milk gets dried and mixed well with carrot.
3) Then add sugar to it and mix it well.
4) Meanwhile , heat ghee in a pan . Roast cashews . Once roasted , add the carrot mixture to it and mix well . Remove from the flame , once halwa consistency is reached . (halwa should not stick the pan).
