After the time is up, let the cooker cool down, then open it.  A little milk must be separated from the malai, turn the flame on and cook on medium-high flame while stirring continuously till the milk gets mixed with carrots.  When the milk is almost finished, then add 1 cup of sugar and cook till the sugar dissolves in halwa.


When the sugar dissolves well and halwa becomes thick, add 2-3 tsp cashews, 2-3 tsp almonds and 4 coarsely crushed small cardamoms.  Mix them well, turn off the flame and take out the halwa.  In this way, gajar ka halwa will be ready, serve it garnished with some cashew nuts and almonds and enjoy its taste.
