Gajar Halwa (Carrot pudding)

Gajar halwa (carrot pudding) is most popular and delicious Indian sweet. I used to make Gajar halwa generally in winter when I get fresh,juicy and red Carrots. You can also enjoy this dish during fast days.

This recipe is made with carrots,sugar,ghee and some dry fruites. It has very smooth and creamy texture.Traditionally full fat milk is used in this recipe for creamy texture but I used khoya (evaporated milk) and milk both to save time.It is very easy to make recipe. Hot Gajar halwa is perfect dessert to serve your guest in winter.
