Carrot Halwa/Gajar ka Halwa

When it comes to eating carrots, most of the kids are quite hesistant....(The same is the case at my home too *smiles*). So, the only way to make my kids eat carrots is through this sweet dish.

Recipe Source:

Carrots - 1 1/2 kg
Condensed Milk - 200 gm
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 2 tsp
Grated cashew nuts and almonds - handful

  • Wash and grate the carrots finely.
  • Transfer the grated carrots to a pressure cooker.
  • Cook for about 2 mins.
  • Remove the lid of the cooker and allow the excess water to evaporate.
  • Keep churning the carrots occassionally.
  • Pour the condensed milk and ghee over the cooked carrots.
  • Simmer till all are well blended.
  • Remove from the flame.
  • Sprinkle with grated cashewnuts, almonds and cardamom powder.
  • Carrot Halwa is ready to serve.
You can even add fried raisins along with the cashewnuts and almonds. Any Indian sweets,when served chilled tastes better.
