gajar ka halwa ( my 100th post )

I am so excited to post this yummy, delicious, drooling halwa which i made today to celeberate my 100th post in my blog .Wow!! i just cant imagine i have posted so many recipes in such less time ,seriously i counted all my posts so many times to check wether it is really my 100th post or not, i m still looking forward for writing 100 and many more  recipes .I started blogging last december (2009) and today have completed 100 posts,i do have  few in my drafts but surely wont count them ;) ,i guess im obsessed with my cooking these days and also with building up my blog :P ,i started this blog as many of my recipes were piled up and was difficult to maintain in the book which was everynow and then had become my daughter's colouring book,i should actually be thankful and grateful to my princess ,maybe becoz of her i could think of this blog.
I really want to confess something today that i am not a WRITER,writing is not my cup of tea,i really cannot express myself or the introduction given for the recipes through writing but still i have managed to write a bit of my memory towards few of them, here in my palate corner i only want to share the recipes which are tried in my kitchen which i personally found  very palatable and so wanted to know the world about it,also im getting immense pleasure in trying my fellow bloggers toothsome recipes which i could have never imagined before,i thank all of them ,i am getting inspiration from them and thats the reason i want to post more and more,im learning a lot new cusines/dishes and varieties from their blogs. Here's my  version of carrot halwa  though today it had become little mushy as i only have a thin grater here and had real pain in grating with my hands as no food processor also :( but at the end  it was fruitful.

ingredients :
1 kg carrot ( approx 3-4 cups grated )
3 tbsp ghee
1/2 lt milk ( approx 2-2.5 cups )
1/2 cup sugar (adjust according to your taste ,i usually add less sugar )
cardomon pwd to taste
almond slivers or almond flakes for garnishing
method :
Peel and grate carrot ,heat ghee in deep pan/kadhai,add the grated carrot and fry for 3-5 mins.Add milk and stir for a while,keep the flame on low to medium heat and let it cook on its own,do keep stirring in between , cook till the carrot absorbs all the milk completely and reduces almost half of its quantity( it may take around 40-45 min in all),after the milk dries up,add sugar and stir continuosly on high flame till it gets dissolved completely.Take off the flame,sprinkle cardamon pwd and garnish with almonds.Serve when warm or also can be served with vanilla icecream ,this halwa can be store in refrigerator for few days and can be used as and when required.
