Easy carrot halwa recipe/pressure cooker gajar ka halwa recipe

Halwas are my all time favorite desserts. I enjoy making different types of halwa at home. But in my opinion carrot halwa and Karachi halwa are the very popular sweets in India. I have already shared carrot halwa recipe which is cooked in kadhai here. Today I'm going to share easy pressure cooker version of carrot halwa which tastes so delicious. So, let's get started.....

Servings : 4 to 5

Ingredients :

Carrots : 500 grams
Cashewnuts and almonds : 10 each (sliced)
Cardamom powder : 1/2 tea spoon
Sugar : 250 to 300 grams or as per your taste
Milk : 500 ml
Condensed milk : 1/2 cup
Ghee : 1/3 cup/75ml

Method :

First peel and grate carrots well and keep a side.

Now heat ghee in a pressure cooker,add nuts and fry until they changes into golden color and take into a plate.

Now add grated carrots and saute for 5 minutes or until raw flavors disappear.

Now add milk and mix it well, put the pressure cooker lid and cook for 2 to 3 whistles and remove from fire.

Now let all the pressure goes out. Remove the lid carefully and put on fire.

Now add sugar and stir constantly until Sugar melts and water gets dry. 

Finally add fried nuts,cardamom powder and condensed milk, pour some ghee on top, stir it for 2 to 3 minutes and remove from fire.
