    1. Chop the carrots into thin slices. Boil the carrot slices in water.
    2. Grind the boiled carrot slices on a sheel pata to make a soft paste.
    3. Heat a pan with the ghee. Add the carrot paste, cardamoms and sugar. Stir well continuously so that the carrot paste becomes sticky and dough-like.
    4. By now the ghee should start to simmer on top. Pour the halwa on a flat tray.
    5. Cut out diamond shapes (borfi shapes) or any preferred shapes and place the shapes on a plate. Allow the halwa borfi to chill for a few minutes.
