This was very yummy, it tasted like basundi. I tasted a little(hubby's persuasion)and then had a generous amount without worrying about weight woes.
Carrot - 1
Beetroot - 2
Yellow Pumpkin - 50 gms/1/2 cup grated
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Cardamom seeds/powder - 5
Cashews and raisins for garnish
1. Grate the vegetables.
2. In a non-stick pan, pour the milk and add the veggies.
3. Keep stirring frequently until the milk thickens. Once the milk starts bursting like bubbles, remove from heat(stove). This process usually takes 20-30 minutes. Using a pressure cooker may not give good results, though it saves time.
4. In another non-stick pan, heat ghee and add the veg-milk mixture and keep stirring continously.
5. After 5 minutes, add sugar and keep stirring. Once you add sugar, it will turn to a liquid consistency and colour will change. This is expected.
6. Keep stirring frequently every 2 minutes until the halwa is ready. When you feel the consistency is thick enough, remove from heat. This process needs a little patience.... Remove from heat.
7. Fry raisins and cashews in ghee and garnish on the halwa.
Serve hot or cold with icecream.
