Gajar Halwa

Ingredients to make Gajar Halwa

  • 1 kg carrot, grated
  • 150 gm mawa
  • 1/2 litre milk
  • 200 gm sugar
  • cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
  • 1 tablespoon almond sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cashew chopped
  • 1 tablespoon raisin
  • ghee 1/3 cup

How to make Gajar Halwa

  1. Take a heavy deep wok, add ghee in the wok and fry the dry fruits for 30 seconds. Then take it out and keep it on a tissue to absorb the extra oil.
  2. Now add the grated carrot into the ghee and let it cook for 10 mins on a low flame. (Note that the water of the carrot should not burn.)
  3. Now add the milk and let it cook till the carrot absorbs the milk.
  4. Add sugar, mawa, cardamom powder and cook on a low flame, in between check that the carrot does not burn from the bottom of the wok, so stir it.
  5. You will see the carrot halwa gives a little shine.
  6. Add the dry fruits and turn off the stove after 5 mins.
  7. Serve it warm for best taste.

My Tip:

You can use 1/2 tin of milkmaid as well. Avoid sugar if you don't like it.
