Carrot Halwa / Gajar ka Halwa / Gajrella

This month  for Blog Hop I am paired with Pradhya of The Pumpkin Farm  when I saw carrot halwa I decided to make it, as carrot halwa is so well liked by Jai and Aishwarya .This recipe is not the traditional time consuming recipe but a recipe suitable for the modern day busy cooks which yields delicious halwa in less than 10 minutes.Do try this and let me know how you like it.
Ingredients:
Carrot (grated)-2 cups
Milk-1/2 cup
Milk powder-6 tbs
Sugar-1/2 cup or to taste
Ghee-3 tbs
Cardamom-1/2tsp
Nuts and raisins (optional)-1/4 cup
Method:
Take a pressure cooker and add 1 tbs of  ghee to it, when hot ,roast the nuts and raisins for a minute and set aside. Now add the grated carrots to the cooker pan  along with the remaining  ghee, stir well to coat  all the carrots. Add milk to this and close the pressure cooker and cook this for 2 whistles. Open the cooker after removing the pressure and add milk powder  and sugar. Cook for 3-4 mins or until halwa oozes out ghee from sides. Add the powdered cardamom  and garnish with  nuts and raisins.
Sending this over to

and to Krithi's Kitchen
