Ingredients to make Diabetic friendly Gajar Halwa

  • Lauki / Doodhi / bottle gourd - 1/2 medium (about 150 gms)
  • carrots - 2 large (about 250 gms)
  • Unsweetened mawa /Khoya - 2 tbsp (Optional)
  • Gud / jaggery - 6 tbsp (I used 4 tbsp grated jaggery + 2 tbsp powdered palm sugar)
  • Milk - 1/4 cup (or replace with 4 tbsp of skimmed milk powder)
  • saffron - a few strands
  • cardamom - 1 (powdered fine)
  • almonds / raisins / Cashew for garnish (Optional)
  • ghee - 2 tbsp

How to make Diabetic friendly Gajar Halwa

  1. Wash, peel, grate Carrots and Lauki. Add a pinch of saffron and pressure cook with the milk for 4 whistles. Let the pressure come down fully.
  2. In a pan, heat ghee saute the nuts. Add the cooked veggies and saute for 5-6 min on low flame. Add the grated jaggery, mawa if using, and let it cook till the mawa is melted and ghee leaves the sides. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  3. Top with sauteed nuts if using and serve warm or at room temperature

My Tip:

Add milk little by little, choose fresh vegetables and use them as soon as you grate them. You can also add kaddu (sweet pumpkin) for a different version. Replace Khoya and Ghee with vegan alternatives for a vegan dish.
