Carrot Halwa, also known as Gajar ka Halwa, is a traditional Indian dessert made with grated carrots, milk, sugar, and ghee (clarified butter). The dish originated in the Northern region of India and is typically enjoyed during festivals, weddings, and other special occasions.
To make the dish, grated carrots are cooked in a large pot with milk and sugar until the milk is fully absorbed and the carrots are soft and tender. Ghee is added for flavor and richness. The dessert is often garnished with chopped nuts, such as almonds and cashews, and dried fruits like raisins.
Carrot Halwa is typically served warm or at room temperature, and can be enjoyed on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The dish has a sweet and nutty flavor with a creamy, pudding-like texture. It’s a comforting and satisfying dessert that’s perfect for the colder months.
