Carrot Kheer

Hi! We all know that carrots are good for eyes. Especially for kids..nowadays children are playing games on their phones and sitting in front of laptops and T.V.s (of course along with studies). So we have to think of new ways to get them to eat their carrots. Here is a simple and delicious dish that kids will love :)
 
What you need:
Carrots-2
Sugar-1/2 cup
Ghee- 2 tablespoons
Boiled milk- 2 cups
Cardamom powder- 1 teaspoon
Cashew nuts- 6
Pistachios- 6



Preparation:
  1. Heat one tablespoon of ghee in a pan and fry the cashew nuts and pistachios till they turn light brown in colour. Allow them to cool and cut them into small pieces.
  2. Peel the carrots and grate them. Now fry the grated carrot in the same pan on a low flame for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the sugar and milk to it and let it boil for 4-5 minutes on low flame.
  4. Add cardamom powder and turn off the stove.
  5. Garnish with the sliced and fried cashews and pistachios and serve it after refrigerating it for an hour or so. 
Note: You can also add almonds instead of pistachios.

I'm back! :)

Bread Halwa

Hi friends! I'm back after a looooong break :P Hope to share some delicious recipes with you.  
 
What you need:
Bread slices- 12
Sugar or grated jaggery- 1 cup
Ghee- ¼ cup
Khova- ¼ cup
Cardamom powder- 1 teaspoon
Cashew nuts- 6
Almonds- 6


Preparation:
  1. Heat one tablespoon of ghee in a pan and fry the cashew nuts and almonds till they turn light brown in colour. Allow them to cool and cut them into small pieces.
  2. Now fry the bread slices with ghee in the pan. Remove the crust of the slices if required.
  3. Next, take a heavy-bottomed vessel. Add one cup of water and sugar to it and boil it on a medium flame. Make one-string consistency syrup and add the bread slices to it.
  4. Mix it well and then add Khova. Lower the flame and stir it for 5-6 minutes until it becomes thick. Now add two tablespoons of ghee and cardamom powder to it. Mix it and turn off the stove.
  5. Transfer it into a serving bowl and garnish with the pieces of cashews and almonds.   
Delicious bread halwa is ready now…enjoy :)

Note: Instead of frying the bread slices in the pan, you can also toast­ them in the toaster. Since we are not soaking the fried bread pieces in milk, it is a dry Halwa and it will keep fresh for two days.
