CARROT HALWA RECIPE

Carrot halwa | Gajar halwa recipe, a popular Indian sweet, made using Carrot, milk and sugar. Many people make carrot halwa using Khoya, to enhance the richness. Some people make carrot halwa with condensed milk by replacing sugar with condensed milk. I have tried this few times when i had guests at home. I am yet to try Gajar halwa with khoya. This time we have a reason to make a sweet. since the entire family is a so happy as my brother-in-law got married last week. Let’s see how to make gajar ka halwa.

  • Grate the carrots in a grater which has medium sized holes.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, add the grated carrots and milk.
  • Boil it in a medium flame stirring in between.
  • Boil till the carrots are cooked and all the milk get absorbed.
  • If you are using sugar, don’t add condensed milk
  • Add sugar at this stage and stir well.
  • Add the milk masala. If not you can add cardamom powder.
  • Switch off the flame and golden fry the nuts in ghee.
  • Add to the carrot halwa.
  • If you are using condensed milk, add at the final stage and stir till the mixture gets thicken.
If you are making in large quantity or lazy in grating carrots you can follow this method:
  • Peel the skin of the carrots and wash them . Chop them roughly into pieces.
  • Pulse this in a mixer.Add milk to this and pressure cook this for 2 whistles.
  • Once done, add the cooked mixture to a pan and ad condensed milk. Boil till the rest of the milk gets absorbed. This will take 10 minutes approximately.
  • Serve hot .
  • I served with vanilla ice cream, since we all love this combo a lot.

For 2 cups of grated carrot 3 tbsp sugar is enough?

While editing the old format, did a mistake in typing. It is 3/4 cup of sugar
