From the end of January to February in India, it is the season of large supply of early spring carrots. Carrot Halwa is also a must-see for the best travel time in January and February. At this time, no matter whether it is a sweet shop or a dark food street stall, you can cook sweet carrots and milk in the big pan. When you see the sweet scent that comes up when the ghee is mixed in, you will take a small bowl made of dried leaves like other locals and eat it on the side of the road. You live in a family in Allahabad for a few days, a dinner at a certain night. Finally, I also took this dessert. I was sighed at the time, no matter where I was or the most delicious at home, I thought about it. Before I left, I deliberately asked my mother and the cook for advice. I came back several times. Although there is no deep pink sweet carrot that is unique to India, it is not bad to choose a relatively ordinary carrot. The recipe for family cooking is different from the sweets on the street. The finished product is not greasy.
Carrots are washed and peeled and finely shaved into fine silk. Raw cashew nuts are baked at 140-150 degrees for 4 minutes. The grapes are dry cleaned.
Pour the milk and carrots into the pan, boil in the middle and high heat, stir constantly until the water in the milk evaporates to the same level as the carrots. The carrots completely 'suck' the milk. Add the sugar and continue to stir until the sugar is completely melted and evaporate more water, which is thicker overall. Stir in the fermented butter and continue to stir for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the raisins and turn off the heat.
The roasted cashew nuts are chopped and sprinkled into your small bowl before eating.
1. Indian ghee (ghee) does not have fermented salt-free butter. 2. You can add your favorite spices during the cooking process. Each family's recipe is different. When I made it, I put two small white beans (cooked to almost fish out) and about 1/4tsp cinnamon powder. 3. This Halwa sold on the streets of India is very sweet, and has a relationship with the steps: direct carrot and a lot of ghee fried and add milk and add a lot of sugar - so fast to keep up with the sale, you can also enlarge the amount of sugar Save for a long time in hot weather. At home, it takes a lot of time to cook the rotten carrots and finally only mix a small amount of sugary mouth, which is much lighter and lighter. 4. The last two times do not put sugar and butter, but boiled butter brandy sauce (sugar, butter, brandy) and then added it. I like to experience alcohol in the dessert. 5. If the hand is a long-grain raisin, it is best to cut it in the middle. The scent and sweetness after mixing in can also be better integrated.
