In a large pan, take 5 tablespoons of oil or ghee and then add grated carrots with 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Mix well. Cook until carrots start to change colour and then add sugar, cardamom, chopped cashews, and pistachios.
Continue to cook for another 5-6 minutes and then add 2 cups of almond flour. Keep checking that the carrots do not dry. If they do, cover the lid, and continue to cook the halwa for another 10 minutes until the carrots start to turn brown and caramelize on the edges.
Mix the raisins and flax meal, and switch off the heat. Let this concoction sit for a few minutes.
Take and line a 9-inch cake pan with parchment and add the carrot mixture to it. Spread it out with a spatula and set it aside.
In a blender, add raw cashews, ½ cup sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 500 ml milk, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Blend the mixture for a minute and let it sit for 5 minutes. Blend the mixture again and repeat until the blend is smooth. At this point add sugar as per the desired level.
Add the creamy, smooth cheesecake mixture over the set carrot halwa on the parchment paper and spread it with a spatula. Garnish the cheesecake with chopped pecans, almonds and pistachios.
Keep the carrot halwa cheesecake in the freezer for two hours so that it sets. You may need to keep it for an extra hour or so that it sets perfectly in the mould and produces smooth slices.
After the cake sets, remove it from the freezer and slice it with a knife as desired!
