Vegan - Pressure cook - Gajar Halwa (Carrot Porridge)

This is the perfect season to use winter carrot. I remember in India, we get nice and long and sweet carrots in winter, where in the US it's available year-round but no taste of what so ever. But we can still use it in regular use or something special like this halwa. It's your regular carrot halwa but with a twist. We don't have time to stand in front of gas and cook and stir halwa till milk and water from carrot goes away. So easy way to indulge in this sweet is put everything in a pressure cooker and 2-3 whistle and you are done. The best part is you can make it vegan also, I have used almond milk in this one and still it is as yummy as ever. If you prefer to make it with regular full-fat milk, you can use that too. If you have evaporated milk, by all means, use that and you will have nice creamy halwa in under 10 minutes. The whole point of making this in the cooker is not to shred, just finely chopped in the same size and dump everything in it.

Ingredients :

3 Peeled and finely chopped or shredded carrot
1/2 cup your choice of milk, I used almond milk
5 tbsp sugar or depend upon your likings
2 tsp. Green Cardamom powder
Few Raisins, chopped cashews, almonds, pistachio
1 tbsp vegan Ghee / Vegan butter


Take your pressure cooker, add ghee in it, add raisins in it, cook for 30 seconds, add carrots and mix it, add milk and cardamom powder.

Cover it and put the whistle on it.

Keep the flame on low to medium and let it cook till 3 whistles.

Let the air go out by itself.

Open the lid and check if you see it has liquid, turn on the gas and make it dry or as per your liking, add cashews, pistachio in it.

When it's done, take it out in a serving bowl and add finely grated almonds and enjoy hot or cold as per your desire.
