Two In One Delight

          This Two in One Delight is my simple innovative dessert that comprises of two different Indian desserts compiled into one. Hence the name. Made use of leftover Gajar Ka Halwa (Carrot Pudding) and Sooji Ki Kheer (Semolina Pudding) to bring out this easy fusion type party special or an after-meal dessert. So made laddu (dumplings) made out of Gajar Halwa and served with Sooji Kheer, topped with chopped almonds and sugar sprinklers. Bon Appetit!

Gajar Halwa Laddu (Carrot Pudding Dumplings) - 
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 3 pedas (substitute of khoya), crumbled
  • 2 tbsp. ghee 
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • sugar to taste
  • 1 tbsp. kewra water 
  • 2 tbsp. chopped almonds
  • coloured sugar sprinkles and chopped nuts to garnish

Sooji Ki Kheer - 
  • 2-3 tbsp. sooji (semolina)
  • 2 tbsp. ghee
  • 2-3 green cardamoms
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • 3-4 tbsp. sugar or to taste
  • pinch of salt
  • 3-4 cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 2-3 tbsp. chopped nuts

          To make the Gajar Ka Halwa Laddus - 

          Heat ghee in a pan and saute the carrots for a minute or two on a low flame. Transfer to a pressure cooker. Add milk and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.

          Transfer to a non -stick pan and add the pedas, sugar, almonds and cardamom powder. Keep stirring on a low flame till the halwa thickens and leaves the sides of the pan.

           Switch off the flame and add the kewra water. After it has cooled down, form them into laddus and keep aside.

To make Sooji Ki Kheer - 

          Heat ghee in a pan and add the cardamoms and bay leaves, followed by the semolina. Fry on a medium flame till you get a nice aroma.
          Now add the sugar, chopped nuts, milk, pinch of salt and cardamom powder. Keep on stirring on a low flame till it thickens to a desired pouring consistency. Set aside to cool down a little. 

          To serve hot or cold - Pour some sooji ki kheer in an individual bowl and place a gajar halwa laddu on it. Add some chopped nuts and sugar sprinkles and serve as an after meal dessert.
