“Carrot Halwa / Gajar Ka Halwa ” – that’s what today’s post is about . Drooling ?? I know you don’t need any intro for it… right ?Its probably one of the most popular desserts of our country . And the word gajar ka halwa is a fav be it in Indian movies or festivals or Indian buffets or Indian wedding or any occasion that calls for celebration with sweets .Its a classic simple dessert with no complex ingredients .Its hard to mess them.
In India, Halwas are prepared in various types and im not a huge fan of most of them except a few and carrot halwa being one of them. Come winter and i never miss making these halwas as you find freshest of carrots in this season.Yes winter is the season when in Bangalore market is flooded with all juicy red Delhi carrots. Though taste wise carrot halwa made from red / orange carrot doesn’t make much difference, but the ones made from red are more appealing to the eyes :).
A good thing about this dessert is that you can indulge them without feeling much guilty as amount of ghee and sugar used is less in comparison to other desserts. The only tedious n boring job in making carrot halwa is grating carrot.But thank God !! Now we have food processor to our rescue which makes the job so easy peesy. There are many variation of making this simple dessert. Below is my version of making them ..I don’t add any khova or condensed milk. Just like to keep it simple.
