CARROT CASHEW HALWA


This is excellent in taste and texture .Made with fresh carrot juice and lots of cashew.I have posted many delights with

carrot but this recipe tops it all.

The extracted juice is cooked in ghee till the raw smell of the juice is gone.This step is more important as the raw smell

will not give good results.

Next the rest of the ingredients are added and cooked to perfection .Nutritious sweet recipe worth the try!
