Please excuse the vignetted dark photos that I've been posting lately. They actually come from old recipes that I had posted in my Facebook group and I used to take the photos with my cellphone with this setting turned on.
This is a dessert made from carrots (gajar), milk and cardamom. You don't have to use the exact amount of carrots listed below- it's just an approximation. You can also top this dessert with khoya if you have some, and silver foil. Some people like to add raisins or cashews to the halwa as well. In this version I've decided to keep it simple and I've only used almond slivers for the garnish.
Gajar ka Halwa
1 kg of carrots, peeled and grated
2 small cans of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk
2 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
4 cardamoms, split open so that you can use the seeds
Sprinkle of almond slivers
I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
