Halva or Halwa is a type of sweet preparation that is found across cultures from India to the Middle East and North Africa. It is often compared to the puddings of Europe. Different regions have their own unique ingredients and way of preparing it. In India, carrots are used commonly to make carrot halwa (gajer ka halwa). This dessert item is very easy to make.
Servings : 2
250 grams – Carrot (Orange color)
225 grams – Refined Sugar
500 ml – Milk
3 – Cardamom
Ghee (Clarified butter) – 3 teaspoon
Grate carrot finely.
Take a thick bottomed vessel or non stick pan and boil milk on high flame. When it starts to boil, add the grated carrot.
