Guilt free Carrot /Gajar ka halwa

Carrot Halwa or Gajar ka halwa is a very popular Indian dessert. This halwa is everyone’s favorite in my place. They love it hot directly from the stove top as it is or with vanilla ice-cream.


When I saw farm fresh carrots in my vegetable vendor’s cart, I couldn’t resist myself from buying it. As soon as I bought this I prepared halwa immediately for dinner. Usually carrot halwa has khova in it, but I make it without it and it is a sort of guilt free kind too.
Now we will see my style of preparation,
Ingredients :

Red Delhi carrot – 1 kg
Regular carrot – ½ kg
Milk – 1cup
Sugar – 1 bowl (according to your taste)
Ghee – 2 -3 table sp.
Roasted Slivered almonds – 2 table sp.
Cardamom powder – 1 tsp.

-Wash and peel the outer skin, and grate the carrots.


-Take one thick bottomed pan ,heat 2 table spoon of ghee and fry grated carrots for 10 min ,till it completely wilts.
-now add milk, cook until milk evaporates and carrot cooks.


-now add sugar (here we have to check our required sweetness, we usually prefer little less sweet),and mix nicely till mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
-now garnish this with cardamom powder, roasted slivered almonds and 1 table spoon ghee. Mix this nicely.


Serve hot as it is or with vanilla ice cream.


Enjoy your winter treat.
