Cook Once, Eat Thrice: With Carrots

What's cooking?

Decadent No-Waste Carrot Halwa

About the recipe

Bought that bag of carrots? It’s not just for bunnies, I promise! In this episode of The Sunday Cooking Club, I teach how mundane carrots can be transformed into multiple, delicious dishes. In the video, I also share my meal-prep ideas and hacks to use up that entire bag of carrots.

Dish: Decadent, Fudgy Carrot Halwa that is made with roasted carrots slowly simmered in saffron and cardamom-scented milk. Happy cooking!

Ingredients for Carrot Halwa:

  • 1 kg carrots
  • 1 cup cane sugar 
  • 2 l milk 
  • A generous pinch of saffron
  • 1 tsp cardamom Powder
  • 3 tbsp ghee

Prep: rinse and scrub carrots.

Garnish: chopped and roasted nuts like pistachios and cashews (slivered almonds are also great here). 

Serve: as a dessert.
