With Eid right around the corner, Taj Jumeirah Lake Towers’ executive chef Sonu Koithara has revealed how to make his gajar ka halwa dish – a traditional Indian dessert served during moments of celebration.

The recipe for the carrot-based dish is as follows:

• 1kg of carrots
• 2 litres of milk
• 30g of ghee
• 2-3 green cardamom pods
• 60g of sugar
• Cashew nuts

• Wash and peel the carrots, using a thick grater, grate the carrots
• In a thick bottomed pan heat the milk
• Lower the heat and reduce the milk till it reduces to half
• When half of the milk is left, add in the grated carrot and stir until it goes soft and all the milk is incorporated in the carrot
• In a separate pan, heat ghee and add in the cardamom and sugar
• As the sugar dissolves add in the cooked carrot
• Cook till the ghee starts separating from the mixture
• Garnish with fried cashew nuts and serve warm
