Gajar Halwa | Carrot Halwa

Carrot halwa or Gajar halwa is an ethnic Indian sweet or you can also call it a festive delicacy that is absolutely scrumptious and rich. There is nothing more interesting than to cook up a sweet dish for your loved ones on a festive day. It is one such dish that is loved by one and all. I am yet to come across someone who doesn’t like this. It can be made with full-fat milk or condensed milk….on a gas stove that is the traditional way or in a hassle-free way that is in a microwave.

This recipe of Gajar Halwa or Carrot Halwa requires very little ghee and tons of dry-fruits. You can adjust the sugar as per your taste. You can also replace sugar with sugar-free or brown sugar. The choice is absolutely yours….check out my recipe to make this delicious sweet. It is a little time consuming as I am neither using condensed milk nor am I making it in a microwave.  Some recipes demand  Khoya (dehydrated milk ) for extra richness but my halwa comes out just perfect sans it!!

“Fancy desserts may come and go but Traditional Indian sweets are with us to stay forever!!
