Easy Carrot Halwa ||Gajar Ka Halwa

Carrot halwa.. the best ever seasonal comfort food. Yes..  while we get carrots throughout the year, winter carrots are super special and more fresh. Definitely calls for some warm dessert.. don’t you think?


There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of this grain free, gluten free, decadent , creamy dessert on a cold evening. This carrot halwa is super creamy, very delicious. Although made with only a handful of ingredients you may have spend some 30 to 40 minutes in the kitchen to get this goodness. But it’s totally worth it, trust me. Two quick tips when making carrot halwa
1. Use a seasoned iron wok or pan. Helps with non stick part.
2. Use a silicon spatula or a wooden one. And leave it on the pan with milk. This helps in avoiding milk spillover and gives a rest to your arm from constant stirring.

3. Addthe cardamom pods/powder and all the milk. Let it simmer until all the milk is absorbed and the carrots are soft. See tips to avoid constant stirring. Will take 20 to 30 minutes
