Carrot Halwa (Gajar Ka Halwa)


Carrot Halwa (Gajar Ka Halwa) is a delicious dessert prepared with Carrot, Milk, Sugar, Nuts and Ghee. Carrot Halwa is generally prepared by cooking the grated Carrots with Milk and generous amount of Ghee for a long time. Here, I have used Condensed Milk and Milk powder to cook in a short span of time. I have also used only very little Ghee as I don’t prefer adding it in large amount. This mouth-watering sweet is generally preferred by all during winter. It is very easy to make this toothsome Halwa. Here, is the simple recipe of it.
