Salaam alaikum,

There are a lot of different types and recipes for halwa. My favorite was one that an Iraqi lady made once, when I went to her house for dinner. She put cocoa in it. It was really delicious. Simple ingredients as well. Just flour, oil, cocoa and water.

WaSalaam, Hajar

I know how to make carrot halwa (Indian Style)

Take couple of carrots, wash and clean then blend it/shred into small bits

Put 2 tablespoon of Clarified butter (ghee) in a pot and add carrots

Cook it until you can smell sweet fragrance

Then pour whole milk until it cover 2 1/2 times compare to amount of carrot in pot

Put bits of saffron, almond slivered, and pistachio, add sugar

Stir milk slowly until it evaporate

When there is almost no milk, it is considered done

Remember to always stir the milk. Don’t let it stick/burn or else it will smell bad.

I know other type of halwa too, but above is my fav

Khoya is made by reducing a large volume of milk to a solid by very slow boiling for many hours; about 3 liters of milk will produce hardly 200-300 gms of khoya.

Br Dhul

It is hard to learn cooking if you try to be specific. Cooking is a free style activity; it is not an accurate technology but a trial and error.

For carrot, assume 2 carrot if for 2 ppl, so if you want to cook for 2 ppl that will be 4 carrot. As for ghee, put enough to cover base of pot. For milk, put more double the amount of carrot. If you put more, it will taste better. Regardless of amount of milk, just make sure there is almost no milk at the end

As for fragrance, when you start cooking, there will not be any smell. As you go on, you will notice a change of color and texture and if you put your nose near the pot you will smell an aroma from carrot (careful here)

make sure not to put milk unless the carrot are properly done. Use whole milk

Sugar comes last and finally comes all those almond and pistachio-slivered

You cant go wrong with carrot halwa.

There is nothing hard in cooking. Cooking is the easiest thing to do. It is just the menu (to choose what to cook) that makes it hard. Otherwise, cooking is fun.

Bro. Dhulfiqar, why dont you just visit some Indian/Pakistani/Arab store and buy "Laziza Mix" (Like Shaan) and do as it says? :blink:

I should have went with my original plan, to "re-package" the halwa they gave me and call it mine -- maybe add some some nuts and stuff to make it look different. ::sigh::

Wa Salaam,
