Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed frying pan or pot.
Add spiralled carrots and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the milk and bring it to a boil.
Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes over low flame, stirring at intervals. Cook until the carrots are soft and the milk is evaporated.
Add the sugar and mix well. Cook until it turns thick for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring at intervals. In a separate pan, fry the cashew nuts in ghee until golden brown and add it to the halwa. Serve warm or chilled
