Gajar Halwa Recipe taken from Mrs. Swapna Dutta, Sawan’s mom

There’s red red carrots in the market
They’re headed for my kitchen you can bet
From the red red carrots I’m going to get
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh

(Ingredients : Carrots – 4/5 or half kilo, khoya (solidified milk) 100 – 125gms, sugar 1/2 cup or to taste, dry fruits ( cashew, raisins ), ghee – 2 tbsp, cardamom pods 4)

Grate all your carrots, heat up the ghee
Saute the cardamom, the dry fruits very gently
Add all the carrots, stir for some time (15-20min/ till carrots are tender)
Now add the khoya ( stir for a min ), and the sugar, it smells sublime!

Stir till its thick and creamy as sin,
Go on, take a spoonful, dig right in!
Whichever part of the world you live in,
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh

That’s how my mom makes it for me
When I visit her in winter randomly
She knows just how I like it you see,
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh
Gajar Halwa!!!

  19. Euphoniously Nourishing Healthful Wholesome Nutritive And Nutritious :: GAJAR KA HALWA
    Good Job Sawan
    No Matter What Diet You Are On, You Cannot Resist Some Steaming Hot GAJAR KA HALWA In Winters.
    At The Same Time, It Tastes Delicious Even When It Is Served Cold.
    Sprinkled Dry Fruits Make It Look More Appetizing And Add To Its Nutritious Value.
    Not Everything Has To Be Calorie Free, And GAJAR KA HALWA Is One Such Thing.
    Carrots Are Loaded With Vitamin A (Eyes). Also, It Is A Very Good Source Of Fiber, Vitamins C And K. Milk Adds Some Calcium And Protein To This Dish. Cashews Add A Good Amount Of Protein To This Dish As Well. Raisins Are Known To Be An Antioxidant Rich Fruit.

    All the Best
