Gajar Halwa

In India and Pakistan cooks take advantage of carrots' natural sweetness by using them in desserts. Gajar Halwa is made by simmering carrots with raisins and milk until their sugars become very concentrated. This no-fuss version of this pudding-like treat features the golden color and rich flavor of carrots perfumed with cardamom. Serve this dessert warm, topped with yogurt and a sprinkling of chopped, pale green pistachios. It is the perfect end to a light meal.
