Winters arrive with the lovely red carrots, and time for some gajar ka halwa… My mom used to make this, and we used to just wait and wait, since the house used to fill up with the sweet aromas… I can’t say if my halwa comes out as tasty as hers but Saurabh says it is something to die for.. :)
Preparation Time:- 30 mins | Cooking Time:- 5-6 hrs | Serves:- 6-8 people
- 1 kg Red Carrot grated (Gajar)
- 2 ltr Milk
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons of Ghee
- Almonds and cashewnuts for Garnishing (Almonds soaked over night, peeled and chopped can be used)
In a pan add the Milk and carrots. Bring to boil by stirring continuously.
Simmer the stove and let the milk boil. Keep stirring in between. It will take around 4-5 hrs to cook properly.
Once there is very little milk left and the carrots seems to be boiled properly, add the sugar, and now stir continuously.
Once the milk has dried out, add the ghee and start frying the halwa. Continue the same for around half an hr, till the halwa gets cooked properly.
Garnish with Almonds and cashewnuts.
