Carrot Halwa Recipe -- How to make Gajar Ka Halwa

Hi, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make gajar ka halwa recipe.

Gajar ka halwa is the season's best sweet made as new year special at my home. Gajar means Carrot in Hindi. We get a good carrot in this season, red gajar or carrot is a special vegetable available in the winter. Gajar ka halwa made with red carrot, of course we can use regular carrot also, but red carrot has sweeter than the regular one and also nice tempting color. Every December 31st I prepare this sweet and distribute among friends and neighbors. To get the rich taste we use khoya/kowa/mawa instead of milk, but we can use whole milk also.
Now coming to the recipe, I prefer to use a hand grater for grating carrot, instead of mixer grinder or food processor. We need to saute the carrot till we get the nice aroma of it, otherwise, the raw smell will be there. Do not add more sugar as the carrot have some sweetness in it and adding milk or mawa gives sweetness, so take care not to add more sugar.
