Happy Valentine's Day to all. Enjoy the love with your loved ones and share the love as much as possible.
I have some few friends and fellow blogger who visit the space, who loves food and write about food rather than coming to increase their page visit or to invite to participate some events they are conducting in their space. One of such friend and fellow blogger is Suja of Kitchen Corner-Try it. When asked her to do guest post due to my baby leave, she immediately agreed to do one for me. She blogs about delicious food from southern state of India, Kerala, We both are from there. She does both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacy in addition to recipes from other part of India as well as baking etc. In order to celebrate my little one's arrival she made this delicious Fudge, sure if you try this one you are going to be in love with them. Suja , Thanks for doing a guest post for me.
Suja, in her words;
Today is an exciting day as I have been invited to Swathi's home- Zesty South Indian Kitchen. Yes, you guessed right! my first ever guest post and I am so excited:) When Swathi asked me to do a guest post,I just could not believe it and I felt honored.This being my first guest post makes it even more special.
Blogging was one of the best things that has happened to me, in the past two year.I started this space to express my love for flavors and my humble space was blessed with visits by some really versatile bloggers with great culinary talent. Swathi was one such early friends who's passion and energy has always been inspiring and filled me with awe.She presents delicious food and always has a healthy edge to her cooking, with I really admire.
Today I am posting my favorite desserts of all Carrot Halwa. It will soon be celebration time for Swathi and her family.Her bundle of joy will soon arrive. This one is for you, Swathi.
Thank you for having me as a guest in your space.
Shredded carrot-3 1/2 cups
(adjust according to sweetness you like)
Condensed milk- 1/2 tin
Khoya- 1 cup
Milk- 11/3 cup
Cardamon - 5-6
Cashew nuts- 10-12
Ghee- 3-4 tsp
Heat two tsp of ghee in a pan and slightly roast cashew nuts till it changes color and keep aside.
In the same pan add the shredded carrot ( try to shred it a little thick,if it is finely shredded it will get all mashed up) and fry in medium till the moisture evaporates and the raw flavor disappears. Add milk and allow to simmer so that the carrots to get cooked and adsorb all the milk. Stir in occasionally.This will take about 3-4 minutes.
Add khoya, condensed milk and sugar and mix well till there is no lumps. Make sure that the carrots are completely cooked before adding sugar. The mixture needs to get thickened.
Add the rest of the ghee and crushed cardamon and stir continuously for about 7-8 minutes or till all this mixture becomes on mass and the ghee starts separating. Allow it to come to room temperature before serving. You can also spread into a mold and cut into desired shapes.
Thanks Suja for this delicious guest post.
