- 4 cups grated carrots
- 1 cup milk (preferably almond or soy milk for added protein)
- 1/2 cup Osoaa Whey Protein
- 1/2 cup jaggery or sweetener of your choice
- 1/4 cup ghee
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, and pistachios)
- 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
- A pinch of saffron strands
- 1/4 cup raisins
Prepare the Carrots: Peel and grate the carrots finely. You can use a food processor to make this step quicker.
Cooking the Carrots: In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add the grated carrots and sauté them on medium heat until they soften and release their moisture. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
Adding Protein Power: Once the carrots are soft, pour in the milk and stir well. Allow the mixture to simmer until the milk is mostly absorbed. This is where we introduce the protein boost! Sprinkle the protein powder evenly over the carrots and mix thoroughly.
Sweetening the Deal: Add the jaggery or your preferred sweetener to the carrot mixture. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste. Continue cooking and stirring until the halwa reaches a thick, pudding-like consistency.
Infuse Flavors: Add cardamom powder and saffron strands (if using) to enhance the flavor. Stir well to ensure the spices are evenly distributed.
Nuts and Raisins: In a separate pan, heat the remaining ghee and lightly roast the chopped nuts. Add these to the halwa along with raisins if you desire, saving a few for garnish.
Final Touch: Continue to cook the halwa until it reaches the desired consistency, and the ghee starts to separate from the mixture. Your Protein-Packed Gajar Ka Halwa is now ready!
Serve and Garnish: Serve the halwa warm, garnished with a few nuts and a sprinkle of love. Enjoy the guilt-free pleasure of this protein-rich dessert!
This Protein-Packed Gajar Ka Halwa is not just a delight for your taste buds but also a nutritious addition to your diet. Indulge in the sweetness while ensuring your body gets the protein it needs. Happy cooking!
