Gajar Ka Halwa belongs specifically to North Indian Cuisine. The gajar are first grated and then cooked on slow flame in milk.Gajar ka halwa is a combination of nuts, milk, sugar, khoya and ghee with grated carrot. It is a light nutritious dessert with less fat. This dish is popular among adults as well as children. Gajar ka halwa is prepared traditionally in indian kadhai.

In this dish gajar is the key ingredient. Usually red carrots are used to make halwa as these are tender and juicy. You can grate the carrots manually or in a food processor. In this traditional recipe we use full fat milk, ghee, sugar and dry nuts, which makes it  delicious and rich. After making it, you can store it in the fridge for a week.
