Gajar Ka Halwa/ Carrot Pudding


According to BM#23, I choose carrot theme for 1st week, under this I prefer to prepare Gajar Ka Halwa, because it very healthy and yumm. You can preserve this halwa for 2-3 days in winter days in airtight glass with lid in freeze.
For enhancing this taste you can add mawa/ khoya or condense milk to more thickness and richness. For garnishing you can add chopped cashews and pistas on the top of halwa and also garnish with silver warq. As per cooking view, gajar ka halwa is very time-consuming halwa but still very simple to prepare compare to lentil based halwa which takes more physical power too.
The halwa/ halva mean sweet which mostly made by Indian on every occasion of happiness, for halwa there is no need of any celebration…. But in winter season or festival time, we all made halwa first in own home. There is two type of halwa one is flour based and second is nut based.
In India, there are various types of Halwa/halva or Pudding you can say like gajar ka halwa, moong dal ka halwa, sooji ka halwa or aatte ka halwa. This time I prefer carrot halwa which generally every Indian made in winter season.

  2. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!
