Instructions

Prep

  • Grate the carrots and Khoa/mawa.
  • Chop the pistachios into thin slices.

Cook

  • Add in the grated carrots and milk in the inner pot. Stir well. Secure the lid on the pot and close the pressure-release valve. Select manual and cook at high pressure for 3 minutes.
  • Once the cooking is complete, use natural pressure release to depressurize. Open the lid.
  • Select saute and adjust to normal. Next add Khoa, sugar, almonds, pistachios, ghee, and ground cardamom. 
  • Stir well. Let it saute until the water liquid evaporates and it becomes completely dry. It should take about 5 minutes. Keep stirring in order to prevent the halwa from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Finally, transfer the halwa in a serving bowl and garnish with additional nuts if you like. Serve hot or at room temperature, whatever you prefer.
