ABOUT carrot halwa RECIPE

One dessert most people look forward to in the winter months is gajar ka halwa. Who would have thought that this indulgent dessert, traditionally laden with clarified butter and solidified and evaporated milk could be adapted to a dairy free version that tastes just as delectable.
