Gajar Halwa / Carrot Halwa

Srivalli’s Blogging marathon#4 Group 1 ended yesterday but i was not able to post since i was held up with my daughter . She had her first entrance exam yesterday, a day filled with anxiety, too much of commuting and at the end of the day we were too tired even to switch on the system. Apologies to Srivalli:-(. Today’s post goes as my post for day 7.


Carrots (grated) 4 cups

Milk 2 1/2 cups

Sugar 1 cup

Khoya 4 tbsp(unsweetened)

Cardamom powder 1 tsp

Ghee(clarified butter) 2 tbsp

Nuts to garnish


Grate the carrots and keep aside

In a pan add Ghee and saute the carrots in it for 3-4 minutes.

Now pour the milk into this and mix well. Let it cook till all the milk evaporates

Time to add the sugar to this.Now again a lot of liquid is spit out. Mix well and cook further for 10 minutes or so.

When the moisture has fairly evaporated add the Khoya and the cardamom powder, Mix thoroughly and cook for 5 minutes

Switch off the stove

Garnish with nuts

Serve warm . My daughter loves to eat this dessert. I hope you like it too.
