Ingredients to make Gajar ka Halwa

  • ½ kg carrots / Gajar
  • ½ litre or 2 cups full-fat milk
  • ½ heaped cup sugar ( ½ cup + 2 tbsp)
  • 3 to 4 Elachi/ cardamom pods skinned and powdered
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • ¼ to ½ cup Khoya/ mawa (optional)
  • Handful of mixed nuts pistachio, cashew and almonds

How to make Gajar ka Halwa

  1. Dry roast nuts on a low heat until crunchy. Set aside to cool and chop them.
  2. Bring milk to a boil in a heavy bottom pot or deep pan. Add grated carrots and begin to stir. Cook until the milk has completely evaporated.
  3. Add sugar and stir. Sugar would release a lot of moisture. Cook until half the moisture evaporates. Add ghee and stir well. Continue to cook until the moisture evaporates and the halwa thickens. If you like you can add grated khoya this time.
  4. Garnish with nuts and serve warm or chilled.
