Gajar ka halwa/ Carrot Pudding Recipe for the unexpected guests

   This all time favouite recipe is prepared in many ways .Sometimes we even tend to look for other alternatives ,this being a very tedious method.Some people even grind the carrots in the mixer,but there is no alternative to the taste that you get from the grated ones.So ,if you are making in large quantities ,you can even take help of the many food processors or chopper available in the market.

For carrot halwa,I prefer to use the pinkish variety more than the orange variety.The pinkish one is sweeter so the halwa can be made with little sugar.
in this recipe I have used the regular elaichi powder or cardamom powder,but I have tried this with rose essence and it tastes absolutely fantastic.I prefer my desserts cold,so this halwa is generally made in good quantity and stuffed in the refrigerator,to be enjoyed week long.

I generally do not cook the carrots in the pressure cooker ,since just sprinkling little salt to the carrots does the job.
In this recipe ,you will see that I have not used condensed milk or khoya,but instead I have used milk powder which gives an equally good taste I have tried to make this recipe with all easily available ingredients ,so that it can be prepared in a jiffy ,when we have unexpected guests.
