As mentioned in the previous step, the ingredients are too few and very common to find at home.
You need :
1) Carrots [I had 1 kilo, which prepares enough halwa for 6 people]
2) Sugar [1 cup : about 250 gms]
3) Milk [about 3.5 cups : about 600ml]
4) Creme [1 cup ]
5) Butter [2 spoons]
6) Dry fruits for garnishing(almonds,Cashew nuts) [optional]
* Magic Ingredient: Ghee
The quantities are proportional to each other. [ I am an intuitive cook [haha ;)], I dont measure things in exact proportions. The approximations add the magic to the taste! :D
But when trying a new recipe, ofcourse it is good to have an idea of the proportions of the items required until you are good at making the dish of your own taste! ]
And now lets talk about The Magic Ingredient Ghee
(there are replacements to it, so dont freak! :) )Ghee
is highly reverent
ingredient of the Indian household! It is the final product after many proceedings done on Milk! It is made at home and is similar to Butter, but not exactly the same. It is used in many culinary preparations (and has many other uses too). Fore more info, here's the link to a nice article on Wiki
. (Someday, I may write an I'ble on preparing Ghee, if it ain't available yet)
If you do not live in India, use Butter instead. Should work equally well.
No more stories, lets begin.
