Low-fat Low-Calorie Carrot Halwa (Fudge)
This is one of my favorite desserts - healthy, quick, tasty, can be made without much effort, very less fat and added sugars. The other thing I like about it is the fact that it kind of represents the essence and purpose of my blog - the kind of recipes it was intended for.

When I had guests in my living room, I was able to prepare this even while entertaining them, as it hardly required me to be around. It is also a great way to make kids eat carrots.


Ingredients:

baby carrots - 1 lb (about 500 grams)
milk - 3/4 cup (preferably fat-free)
honey - 4 tbsp (adjust according to taste)
ghee (clarified butter) - 2 tbsp
sliced almonds - 3 tsp
raisins - 2 tsp

Method:

Blend carrots with milk to a coarse paste in the food processor. Microwave for 7 mins. Remove from microwave, add ghee, stir and return to the microwave for 7 more minutes. By now, the mixture should have reached halwa (semi-solid) consistency. (If not, microwave for a few more minutes). Remove from microwave, add honey, stir well and cook in the microwave for another 3 minutes. Garnish with sliced almonds and raisins and serve hot or cold.

Notes:
1. Keep the heating process to a minimum after adding honey.
2. Cooking times slightly vary among microwaves - so the timing needs to be adjusted accordingly.
