Gajar Halwa with fewer calories

Gajar Halwa is a rich dish.  Lots of ghee, lots of khova, lots of cashew and raisins.  Now make it the healthier way :

Gajar ( variety of carrot) - 200 gms
Milk - 50 ml
Sugar - 50 gms ( to taste)
Ghee - 2 tsp
Cashew and raisins for garnishing - few

Peel and grate the gajar
Take a microwave bowl - put in the grated stuff with milk and put in MW for about 3-4 minutes
At this stage, I found the milk was a little too much, so I strained it and had it ( see I told you this is healthy!)
Add a tsp of ghee at this stage and pop into the MW again or use the stove - just to dry it out a little.

Take a seasoning spoon, heat a tsp of ghee.
Add the cashew and while it begins to brown, add the raisins.

Add to the prepared gajar.
Your halwa is ready.  And tasty too. Eat without guilt.
