Gajar ka Halwa | Carrot Halwa – Recipe No. 69

Gajar ka Halwa is an Indian sweet dessert made from carrot, milk, ghee and sugar. This halwa is very popular in North India. It is mostly prepared during winter season because good quality carrots are available during this season and the ghee (clarified butter) used in this recipe energizes the body in the cold weather.

You can make it on any occasion or festival or anytime whenever you desire to eat any sweet dish. It is very easy but time consuming process. It will take around 1-1 ½ hour to cook but it will taste awesome.

It is a tradition in my family to start a new year with this halwa. We use to make it in bulk and enjoy it for 2-3 days. You can store this halwa in a fridge for at least 1 week. Just warm it before serving to anyone. There will be no change in taste.
