Carrot Halwa

Servings: 6-8
This is a Pakistani recipe, although I have altered it by adding the whipped cream, slivered almonds and sultanas. It is a great recipe for getting rid of surplus carrots. If you like rice cream/pudding, you may like this recipe also.

3 cups roughly grated carrots
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. ground cloves (or to taste)
440g (one 14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup sultanas
1 1/2 cups whipped cream

Melt butter in a saucepan, add carrots. Stir butter through carrots. Add cinnamon and cloves. Let simmer for about 5 minutes or until carrots look soggy. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and water. Mix well. Let mixture simmer until it thickens (30 to 45 minutes). Stir through almonds and sultanas. Let cool and refrigerate overnight. The next day, add whipped cream, stir well. Place in refrigerator for an hour, then serve. I usually serve either alone or with some stewed fruit.

Makes 6-8 servings.
