Carrot halwa is also known as carrot halva or gajar ka halwa(Hindi). It is a popular indian
sweet made with carrots or gajar as it is called in hindi.
Carrot halva can be served as a dessert, snack or as a sweet dish with a main meal. It is one of the favorite Festival Foods.
It is a simple recipe. You can make carrot halva in advance and keep in the fridge for more than a week.
It can be served hot or cold. It has a lovely color and tastes great too. In India, carrots are available in orange color and also reddish color. The reddish color are known as delhi carrots. These redish carrots are sweeter than the orange ones. You may use any of the carrots for making this halwa.
Khoa or condensed milk or homemade full cream is optional but adding that makes the halwa richer and yummy.
If you are adding sweet khoa or condensed milk, adjust the sugar quantity accordingly.
I prefer to make this gajar ka halwa as it is a vegetable based sweet recipe. In the image on top, I have added fresh homemade cream
to carrot halva.
Carrot halva is ready to serve.
Serve it hot or at room temperature or
cold as you like. You may put it in fridge for
cooling and serve chilled.
You may fry cashew nuts in ghee if you wish or add them without frying.
You may add more condensed milk or khoa or fresh homemade cream to make it richer.
You may roast khoa separately before adding to the carrot mixture.
