Step 3: After this add milk to the carrots and mix nicely.Keep the gas in medium flame.After adding milk you have to keep stirring the halwa in short intervals so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan/kadhai.


Step 4: Cook the halwa till the milk has completely thickened and absorbed in the carrots.Add chopped cashew and stir it nicely.Cook it more for about 5-10 minutes.
