This Recipe is one of the oldest recipes in my blog. When i posted it for the first time, i didn't take any picture of it, i just posted only the recipe. Made this again after a very long time for my DH Birthday. We had a Halwa-Cutting Ceremony, instead of the traditional cake-cutting!!! 🙂
I was planning to post it by last week But, Navrathri Celebrations and the Pooja, i really couldn't find time to sit and do a post. Lets move on to the recipe of Walnut Halwa, an Healthy Combination of Vegetable and Nuts.
2 Cups Walnut - (Soak in warm water and remove the skin)
2 cups Grated carrot
1 Cup Milk
11/2 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Ghee
5-8 pods Cardamom Crushed
Nuts For Garnishing
- Grind Walnuts and Carrot adding little milk.
- Heat a heavy bottomed pan add walnut-carrot paste, the remaining milk, sugar and ghee. Keep the flame low and Stir occasionally.
- When ghee start leaving the sides add cardamom and mix well. Take it off the flame and garnish with nuts.
- I used two small Silicon Heart-Shape Moulds for shaping the halwa. Before pouring them to the mould, i scattered some roasted almond flakes in the mould and spread the halwa on top.
