Gajar Ka Halwa


Gajar Ka Halwa is the best dish to be eaten during winters which brings a lot of sweetness to life.

  • Serves 3
  • Easy



Gajar Ka Halwa is one of the most famous halwas of all time.

Gajar ka halwa is loved by most people

When it is winter, and when we all crave for something sweet, most of the times the first thing that comes to mind is garam garam halwa. It is nutritious and filling as well.

It tastes best when made with red carrots also known as Delhi gajar as there is a unique sweetness to these carrots.

The recipe that I have shared is not very high on calories but will definitely not compromise on taste.

No winter is complete without eating this halwa.

My earliest memories of this drool worthy halwa, is when my mother used to prepare it every winter. Even though I do not have a sweet tooth, I used to love eating this halwa.

The ingredients for this halwa are:

Red carrots, milk, mawa, dry fruits, sugar, and ghee. I like to add lots of chopped dry fruits to my halwa. So much that you can actually call it dry fruit gajar ka halwa. I like the contrast of textures. The smooth soft texture of the halwa with the crunchiness of the dry fruits. You can add dry fruits like cashew nuts (kaju), almonds (badam), pistachios (pista), raisins (kismis), walnuts or any other dry fruits of your choice.

If you want to make the halwa even more healthy, add jaggery instead of sugar. You can also add unrefined brown sugar or the lastest fad coconut sugar.

Adding artificial sweetners is another option if you are highly diabetic.

So all you wonderful people out there, try this mind blowing halwa and do not forget to give us your valuable feedback. We are always looking forward to it.

I am also sharing links of other desserts from this blog, do try it and share your precious insights.
