Turn the Instant Pot to Sauté(Hi) and cook for 5-7 mins until most of the liquids are evaporated. Stir frequently, making sure that the halwa does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Note: The halwa will continue to thicken as it cools down.
Garnish with sliced almonds or pistachios. Serve warm or chilled.
NOTE: To make dairy-free carrot halwa, substitute ghee with any neutral oil, coconut oil, or vegan butter
Love the traditional gajar ka halwa? Here are few tips to easily change the recipe for that:
Use regular milk instead of almond milk
Substitute almond meal with khoya(mawa), non-fat dairy milk powder, or ricotta cheese
You can also use milkmaid or condensed milk instead of almond meal Since condensed milk is sweetened, make sure to reduce the sugar substantially
