How to make Carrot halwa/pudding/gajar ka halwa -- with condensed milk-- Indian sweets and dessert recipe

        Carrot halwa was one of the very first desserts I had learned to make from my mom. Her recipe was slightly different. I have made so many times by now that I have learned to perfect the recipe each time I make.I once made a huge quantity for a friends party and everyone loved it.  Its a dessert with which you can impress your guests and its actually very easy to make as well. Its a little time consuming especially when it comes to grating the carrots, but its worth the time.
Carrots- 500gms
Milk- 500ml
Condensed milk- 250ml or 1 cup
Sugar- 200-250gms.(add according to sweetness you prefer as you are adding condensed milk which is also sweet.)
Cashewnuts - 4-5 chopped
Ghee- 1tsp(optional,if you find it too sticky)

Grate the carrots.
Heat little ghee in pan.
Roast the cashews till they are golden brown.
Remove them and keep aside till use.
Add the grated carrots in the same pan.
Saute for 2-3 minutes in medium flame.
Add the milk.
Keep stirring till the carrots cook well and the milk is totally absorbed.
Then add the sugar and condensed milk and keep stirring till it thickens.
This will take around 30 minutes.
Garnish with the cashews.
You can serve it hot .
You can also chill and serve with vanilla ice cream.
