Instant Pot Carrot Halwa using the KitchenAid Food Processor

How to shred Carrots using KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment and How to Cook Perfect Carrot Halwa in Instant Pot 
Hello Friends, 
         Comforting, sweet, and creamy carrot Halwa is always my go-to the dessert menu. Making of carrot Halwa is nothing difficult(if you have an Instant Pot and KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment in your hand). 

Traditionally it takes some time. And when you are cooking it on the stovetop, you will need to stay close to the stove and stir from time to time. But using an instant pot, you don't need to watch it. Just dump carrots and milk and close the lid, set the manual mode for 5 minutes and you are good. It is delightful as the halwa gets pretty and fragrant throughout the process. In this procedure, you cook some coarsely grated carrots in milk till they get completely soft. Then you add sugar, Khoya, and cardamom powder. Cook a little more, and you are done. The halwa gets incredibly juicy, thick, and delicious. You can let it cool and enjoy it. Or you can enjoy piping hot carrot halwa during cold winter days.

        You want the meal(especially dessert) to feel creative, different from last year, and easy to execute. This Shredded Carrots Halwa is perfect when you're throwing a cozy fall gathering, be it game night, a casual dinner party, or the big Thanksgiving or Christmas feast. And this recipe is gluten-free and nut-free. It can all be made ahead of time, so it's perfect for entertaining! Shredding the carrot can be a production if you don't have the right equipment, but they are ready in a snap when you use the KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment. It attaches to the power hub of your KitchenAid Stand Mixer, which, if you're anything like me, is an essential kitchen tool during the holiday season.
