The craving for dessert intensifies during Winter months, and I find myself hunting for a bite of something sweet especially after meals, gajar ka halwa/meetha is one such dessert without which Winter months seem incomplete, it is an absolute must-have!, mostly cooked in large quantities and stored in the fridge, small quantities are then taken out over time and heated till piping hot before consumption.Here's how to make this delicious dessert-
  • Carrots- 3/4 kg
  • Condensed Milk-1 can
  • Milk- 1 liter full fat
  • Cardamom (green)-2-3 crushed
  • Mixed dry fruits-1/2 cup
  • Clarified butter(desi ghee)-1/2 cup+1 tbsp for frying the dry fruit
  1. Wash, peel and grate the carrots.
  2. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan and fry grated carrots till fragrant, about 15 minutes,this is very important to impart a good flavour to the halwa
  3. Add the Milk, condensed milk and cardamoms and cook on a slow flame, stirring carefully till Milk is absorbed, this will take about half an hour, do not stir too much or you will end up with a mush, but be careful not to burn it also.
  4. Adjust sugar, fry the dry fruits and garnish the halwa with them, you can also add some khoya/mawa to the halwa at this stage.
  5. Enjoy the halwa hot :-)
