It had been a long time since I tried Carrot Halwa. The last time I tried was the recipe given in Mallika Badrinath's microwave cooking. It did not turn out to be as authentic as I wanted it to be. So when I saw the Carrot Halwa post of Jayashree, Kailas Kitchen fame, I was bent upon trying it immediately. The season for carrots has started in Pune and I thought what a timely post by Jayashree.
The difference between mine and Jayashree's is:
1. I grated the carrots in the food processor using the fine grating blade
2. I did not use cardamom powder
3. I reduced the quantity of sugar to 1/2 cup for 3 cups of carrot.
and I cooked the entire halwa on stove top.
