Carrot Halwa or Gajar Halwa is traditional Indian dessert ,is made up with grated carrots and milk, dry fruits and nuts. This dessert is very rich having lots of ghee and dry fruits , always served in marriage or Indian festivals.
Diwali — the festival of lights , is very known festival of India, when lots of varieties of desserts are made at every home. It is also perfect time for fresh carrots in market as it falls in winter. There could be nothing more perfect than a bowl of warm carrot Halwa on a cold day during Winter.
The freshly grated carrots cooked in lots of ghee, its nice aroma spread in whole house ....ummmm....my memories with Carrot Halwa. My mother used to make it many times in winter season, we were always grabbing the fresh Gajar Halwa and I still remember that rich sweetness with lots of roasted cashews. Gajar Halwa is not only kids friendly, even I have seen many adults or diet freak people loose the weight loss ambitions when they see Carrot Halwa.
