Since I have a microwave convection oven ,I thought of trying to make carrot halwa in microwave.I googled & got this microwave recipe here.And it turned out amazing !Saved me, a lot of time.
I keep removing malai from my milk every time it forms on the milk.I buy Amul Taaza Milky Milk (with 3 % fat minimum & S.N.F.8.5% minimum ).I collect malai & keep it in freezer.I generally collect malai for nearly a month.hen ,use it for almond halwa ,doodhi halw or carrot halwa.Carrot halwa is made only during winters.
Ingredients : 4 cups de peeled & grated carrots , 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp cardamom powder, 2 tbsp ghee, 1 cup de frozen malai ( remove from freezer & let it remain outside to attain room temperature...almost 3-4 hrs ),dry fruits to garnish ( optional ).
Method : Take a microwaveable dish.Add ghee & the grated carrots. Microwave on high for 3 minute.Let it stand in microwave for 2 minutes.Remove the dish & add sugar, malai & mix in nicely with garted carrot ghee mix.Microwave on high for 10 minutes.Let it stand for 5 minutes in microwave.Remove dish & add cardamom powder.Mix nicely.Microwave on high for 2 minutes.Let dish be in microwave for 5 minutes. Remove from microwave.Serve in katoris or bowls .Garnish with dry fruits like almonds, pistachios & cashewnuts.
My daughter hates desserts with nuts added.Hence the garnish.
Microwave gajar halwa is a hit ! Loved it ! And what a lovely colour !
