Gajar ka halwa

Gajar ka halwa is dish made by grating carrots,for this you need to have strong arms or else you can use food processor.I did use the food processor at times theses are made in bulk like kilos to store that’s the time when the food processor really saves me,,,am like kitne kilo aur banane h am ready lol…winter is a time when we tend to indulge   by eating out a lot.

Best carrots are the dark red ones as they are tastier than the orange one…use which ever is available though.



  • 4 to 5 carrots
  • 1 1/2 cup full fat cream milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 badams
  • 2 kajus
  • 2 pistachios
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder


  • peel and wash the carrots,now grate them
  • use a thick bottom pan for making halwa
  • heat ghee add grated carrots full cream milk and let the carrots cook on slow flame
  • once it starts simmering and cooking stir it occasionally
  • when the milk starts to evaporate and reduce to half or more add sugar dry fruits and cardamom powder to the mixture
  • keep stirring and let it cook on low flame
  • let the mixture dry completely
  • serve hot
  • I don’t prefer adding khoya you can if you wish to
  • I like them cooked in milk the traditional way
