In a wide nonstick pan, heat ghee, add almonds fry for 30 secs, stirring around, then add in cashews, fry till they show up nice golden color then add in raisins and fry for 40 secs.

Add in carrot and fry for a min, add milk and bring to a boil. Now reduce the flame to medium and cook for 15 mins till all the milk is evaporated and even the carrot is soft.

Keep stirring this mixture to fasten the process of evaporating the milk. Make sure that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. Once all the milk is evaporated, add in cardamom powder, sugar and cook for 2 mins.
