The first thought I will get when I think about carrot is carrot halwa. I can never say no to carrot halwa but now I have learnt to say so to most sweets. But I do cook these delicacies once in a while to treat my neighbours and friends. This time the quick  nutri-pot carrot halwa was for my cousin. I love carrot halwa when the carrots are cooked in milk. I do not relish the one wherein the milk solids are added.

But when carrot halwa is to be cooked in milk, we need to spend a lot of time for the milk to evaporate and the flavour to infuse. We need to keep stirring from time to time. These difficulties are erased while cooking in a pressure cooker. Let me show you how easy is it to cook in an instapot or a nutripot which are both electric pressure cookers but from different manufacturers

The time-consuming part of making this nutri-pot carrot halwa is grating the carrots. That is also overcome if you have a food processor which grates the carrot. I grated the carrot in the food processor which hardly took me a few minutes. Then I sauteed the carrot in ghee in the nutripot for approximately 1 minute. Then added milk and pressure cooked it for 5 minutes. Released the pressure, added sugar and cooked on saute mode for another 6 minutes to get the perfect nutri-pot carrot halwa

I have earlier cooked the carrot halwa on the stove too. Here is the carrot halwa cooked on the stove top

This week Poonam who blogs at Annapurna challenged us to use the carrot as the main ingredient under the theme#carrotkajalwa for Foodie Monday Bloghop. After much deliberation, I decided that I would cook this halwa in instapot.

Here is the quick video to show how this delicious carrot halwa can be cooked in a nutripot/Instapot
