Carrot halwa is Indian sweet made with loads of shredded carrots mixed with milk and sugar. Here I am showing the vegan ,low carb version of carrot halwa .
2 teaspoons – Vegan butter/coconut oil
2 cups – shredded carrots
1 can /14oz – coconut milk
1/2 cup – coconut sugar
1 teaspoon – cardamom powder
2 tablespoons – raisins and nuts
Wash and peel the carrots skin.
Cut into pieces. Grate it by hand or
Put in a mixer grinder and pulse them to shredded consistency.
Switch on Instant pot at sauté mode
Melt vegan butter/coconut oil ,fry raisins and nuts until raisins puffs up ,roasts nuts .
Take out the raisins/nuts to a plate.
Add shredded carrots and fry for 2 to 3 minutes until slightly color changes.
Add coconut milk ,mix .
Close the IP lid,seal vent and cook on manual for 3 minutes.
Switch off and allow it to naturally release pressure or quick release (if in a rush).
Switch on sauté mode, add coconut sugar and start cooking by stirring(it takes almost 5 minutes)
Halwa thickens and when you drag the spatula , you can see the bottom of pan for atleast 20 seconds.
Switch off the stove and mix roasted nuts,raisins and cardamom powder.
Note – alternate with ghee,whole milk and granulated sugar for non vegan /traditional carrot halwa.
