Carrot Cottage Cheese Fritters and a Giveaway

As the weather gets warmer, my husband and I try to shed a few pounds we gained in the winter :) I usually swap for healthier, fresh and local ingredients when cooking meals for my family during the warm months, as it is readily and easily available. I try to get locally grown vegetables and fruits, as well as try to grow our own in our garden. I also find during warmer weather, my family and I tend to eat small, but healthier portions of food throughout the day instead of heavy meals.

Carrots from our garden and sweet carrot dessert

Carrots from our garden this summer.  I put some seeds in directly in the soil a few weeks before the last frost.  We enjoyed these delicious carrots in the beginning of summer. 
Children love pulling and digging out the carrots themselves.  Carrot plants are beautiful foliage and are wonderful border plants.  It is healthy to eat carrots just on its own.  We like making this delicious dessert with carrots and milk, it is known as carrot halwa or carrot pudding.    
4 to 5 big carrots (if grated it will be about 2 cups)
2 cups milk
3 cardamom pods ground
2 to 3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp ghee 
1 tbsp nuts 
1 tbsp raisins


Mince the cleaned carrots with the milk in a blender.  Cook the milk carrot mince with the cardamom and sugar until it is well cooked.  

When the milk evaporates and the carrots are well cooked it will become vibrant in colour.  Add ghee, nuts and raisins and sauté for a few minutes.  
Add more sugar if needed depending on your taste.  Serve warm or cold.
