Gajar No Halwo (Indian Carrot Dessert)

This is called Halwa at local Indian restaurants.  I think that’s the Americanized way to label it.  My Indian coworker, Binita, gave me instructions for this. I made it tonight and Chuck says “Namaste, Binita!”

Grate 1 lb carrots on the medium size hole.
Cook on medium heat with @ 2 Tbsp ghee until softening.
Add 1 c. milk and continue cooking the milk down until the carrots are creamy.
Add 1/2 c. sugar 
and 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom.

Take off the eye and allow to cool a little while you have dinner.

(There are recipes online, now that I know the correct name to look for, that add cashews, almonds, pistachios and/or raisins at the end.  We are having plain and will try nuts later.)
