Intsant Pot Gajar Halwa



Kids grow up fast, like real fast.

.

My little one turned 2 yesterday and the whole day I was thinking like when did this happen. I mean just a few months back I was around 15 kgs heavier, my hair was glowing and my skin was totally flushed. And then after a labor of 9 hours (she will be reminded of this every single day, lol) she arrived and she was so tiny that I was literally scared that I would hurt her. And then she was slowly growing and now she is 2, i mean like seriously. Woahhh, time flies or maybe I am just too old to keep a track of it, I am confused or maybe the age is taking over me. Okay, you might be wondering why in my thirties (there is nothing about age which can’t be disclosed so yeah I am in my happy thirties :D) I am getting manic about getting old.

.

.

Because I had a beef with ageing since childhood, I never wanted to grow old. Yeah, I know it sounds childish but I was a child back then and used to pray to god everyday to keep me young forever which clearly didn’t happen because now I am growing old lol.. I am so stuck there.

.

.

Okay whatever, so yeah I was telling that kids grow up fast and we grow old like in a blink of an eye and this life is really really small so make the best of it. Be the best version of yourself for you, for your better half, for your kids, for your parents and for whosoever you meet so that people remember you for the good. There have been instances off late where people whom I was least expecting came back to me after years and apologized for their mistakes, people who appreciated me for all the little I did for them in the past and people who encouraged me (after seeing my blog) that they always knew this was meant for me.

.

.

Instant Pot Gajar Halwa


Ingredients:


Red Carrots grated - 1kg

Milk - 1-1.5 cup

Ghee - 10 tbsp ( I am not mentioning it in gms because by no way we can measure it at home)

Sugar - 1 cup

Chopped Dry Fruits (Cashew, Pistachios, Almonds) - 15-20

Raisins - 8-10

Cardamom powder (optional) - 2 tsp


Method:


  1. In a pressure cooker, add grated carrots and milk and turn on the flame.

  2. On a medium flame, take two whistles and turn off the flame.

  3. Remove the lid once it releases all the pressure and simmer it on medium flame for 4-5 minutes so that all the remaining milk evaporates.

  4. Now add ghee and simmer it for further 4-5 minutes.

  5. Once you see ghee has started releasing from the sides, add sugar and simmer it for more 2-3 minutes.

  6. As the sugar properly dissolves, we are good to add cardamom powder, raisins & finely chopped dry fruits.

  7. Mix it nicely and keep it on flame for 2 more minutes. Serve hot and relish.
