Ingredients to make Gajar Ka Halwa

  • 2 cup red carrots grated
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 green cardamom crushed
  • 20 slivered almonds

How to make Gajar Ka Halwa

  1. In a large wok add the carrots and the milk together. Stir and start cooking it on medium flame. Cook till all the milk evaporates, almost 35 minutes
  2. The carrots will look discoloured, don't worry and add the ghee to it and cook till the carrots change colour, about 15 minutes
  3. Add the sugar to this mix, cook for five to six minutes and add the khoya. Turn off the gas.
  4. The sugar would have melted into the carrot mix by now and then add the cardamom seeds, raisins (optional) and slivered almonds. Mix well and turn into a serving dish..
  5. Let the halwa cool and then decorate with varq and top with crushed almonds. Serve hot or cold.
My Tip: You can add chopped dates to this as well as some fried cashews
