Favorite since childhood!

I grew up eating this carrot halwa because it is my favorite halwa. Is this your favorite too, am I right? There are many ways to make this halwa. Today I will tell you a recipe that you do not have to do much to make it. You just have to cook the carrots with milk and when it cooked well then add sugar to it.

All people make this carrot halwa in their own way, people also use ghee in it and Khoya. Today I will use only raw milk and grounded carrots to make this halwa. Because raw milk contains ghee, which we boil, and then it becomes sour, then we make ghee. Using raw milk, you do not need to add ghee nor lose it.

During winters me and my mum and also my father make this halwa again and again. It will be real fun to make it with family.

Use only Full Fat Milk!

This halwa is made only with full-fat milk that contains a rich creamy texture. We only use red carrots to make this halwa. But people also use orange carrots for the same but the real traditional taste of having gajar ka halwa is from the red carrots.
So I genuinely suggest you make it with the red carrots.

Ingredients

  • 500gm Carrot
  • 1/2 kg Full fat raw milk
  • 200 gm Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cardamom powder
  • Chopped Nuts

Instructions

  • First, wash carrots well and Peel it and grate them.
  • In an Aluminium kadhai Boil the raw milk.
  • When the milk has boiled add grated carrots and mix.
  • Keep stirring the halwa again and again so that the halwa does not stick in the pan and scrape the edges of the pan.
  • Boil the whole halwa mixture till it dries. The milk should be fully cooked and you will see small solid pieces of milk in the carrot halwa.
  • At this time you will see that there will be ghee in the sides of the kadhai. For this reason, I have not added ghee to it because raw milk releases the ghee from it.
  • Add sugar and mix it.
  • When you add sugar, sugar will release its water, then you have to cook the halwa till this water is cooked.
  • Now add cardamom powder, chopped nuts and mix it well.
  • Halwa is ready to serve, serve it hot or you can eat it cool because cold halwa looks more delicious than hot halwa.
