    twissis's Note:

    This is the 1st of 3 Indian recipes found in 1 of my Newsletters. Carrots & milk may not sound like ingredients for a crowd-pleasing dessert, but 1 bite of Carrot Halwa (from Anupy Singla’s The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Healthy, Easy, Authentic Recipes) came w/a promise to chg your mind. A traditional Punjabi dish freq sweetened w/sugar & flavored w/nuts & raisins, Halwa is a smashing end to any meal. Use a 5 qt slow cooker & then serve hot or cold. This recipe yields 7 cups, but is easily halved. In that case, a smaller slow cooker may be used. NOTE: I found 7 recipes for Carrot Halwa & didn't compare all of them w/this recipe, but I do know 1 thing - None of them use a slow cooker as their cooking method. Cooking time does not include the slow cooker time & cooling time as neither requres real attention & I estimated 20 min for the time required to grate the carrots. *Enjoy!*

    My Private Note


    Serves: 14


    1/2 Cup ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Grate the carrots by hand. (This dish is a labor of love & this is the only real labor part of it.) The carrots break down much better if they're hand grated. Alternatively, you can grate them in a food proc. Anupy Singla said the pre-grated, store-bought carrots aren't worth using as they're grated too thick & too long.) Put the carrots in the slow cooker.
    2. 2
      Bring milk to a boil on the stovetop & pour over the carrots in the slow cooker.
    3. 3
      Cook for 3 hrs on high. Remove the slow cooker lid & cook for another 3 hrs on high. Replace the lid (but leave slightly open) & cook on high for 3 more hours. By now, the carrots will be cooked & will look soft & watery.
    4. 4
      Transfer the carrot mixture to a wide, heavy pan & cook on the stovetop on med-high for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the sugar & cont cooking (stirring) for another 15 minutes. While stirring, slowly add the crushed almonds & the ghee or butter. Add the raisins + ground cardamom & cont stirring.
    6. 6
      When the carrot mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan on its own & becomes thicker, it’s done. Take the pan off the heat & let the mixture cool for about 15 minutes. Garnish w/grd pistachio & almonds to serve.
