Carrot Halwa/Sweet Carrot Pudding

I started my take with desserts with Carrot halwa/Sweet carrot pudding.
My mom taught me this in the beginning in desserts list.
I feel it is the most easiest dessarts of all.
Come lets soon prepare easy n quick carrot halwa

Ingredients:
Carrot finely grated-2 cups
Sugar-1 1/2 cup
Ghee-3/4 cup
Milk-2 cups
Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
Raisins/Cashews(optional)

Recipe:
To a deep bottom pan,add carrot and milk.
Milk should be just enough to cover the carrot gratings on top.
Heat the pan on a medium heat,keep stirring and let the entire milk evaporate,check if the carrot gratings are cooked perfectly.
If not,add some more milk and cook further.
If yes,then add sugar to it and keep stirring.
Now once sugar melts and evaporates,add ghee to it and cardamom powder and stir well.
Keep stirring until the ghee oozes and the mixture starts to leave the pan.
Add ghee fried raisins and cashews to it and mix.It is optional though.
Take off the stove and relish hot carrot halwa with cold ice cream!
