Carrot Halwa/ Gajar Ka Halwa

Carrot Halwa otherwise known as Gajar ka Halwa is a classic Indian dessert made with grated carrots and milk. It’s so popular that you’ll find it being served in any Indian restaurant. It’s one of my absolute favorites, it is a desert you can indulge in along with the goodness of the carrots.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Carrot (Grated)
  • 5-6 Pistachio (Chopped)
  • ¼ tsp Green cardamom (powdered/ crushed)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup Evaporated milk/ Khoya
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3 tbsp Ghee/ unsalted butter

 

Method

  1. Heat 3tbsp of ghee in a heavy-bottomed pan on medium heat.
  2. Add grated carrots and sauté for 6-7 minutes.
  3. Add milk, green cardamom and cook on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Keep stirring to make sure the mixture doesn’t get stuck to the pan.
  4. Once the carrots are cooked, stir in the evaporated milk/ khoya and sugar, and cook for another 2-3minutes until the sugar melts and has mixed in well with carrot mixture. Continue stirring and for 2 more minutes and transfer the halwa to a serving dish.
  5. Garnish with chopped pistachios.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature.

This dish can be kept in the fridge for about 5 days.
