Carrot Halwa: For our sweet tooth

So yes, we do prepare sweets also once in a while ;). And what easier sweet than the good old gajar ka halwa? There was ice cream in the freezer that was waiting to be eaten. And almost one kilo of carrots in the vegetable box. And two perpetually hungry people with really sweet tooth (can i say teeth? cause one tooth does not do justice to our liking of sweets :) )
Anyway, to make carrot halwa for two people,

Two large carrots, grated well
Milk , about 200 ml
ghee, 3 tablespoons
Sugar, 6 tablespoons
cashewnuts, a handful

In a cooker, add the grated carrot along with the milk and cook it until two-three whistles. After the pressure is released, stir the carrot on low flame until the milk gets condensed. Now add to it sugar and ghee and keep stirring it until the halwa gets a glazed look.
Roast the cashewnuts in ghee and garnish the halwa with it. Bisi bisi halwa with Ice cream. Sinful pleasure!
