Gajar Ka Halwa

Pin It Now!
Gajar ka halwa is a “must have” in our family during winters, and believe me I end up making it 3-4 times during the winter season. It is unbelievable how the combination of carrots, milk, sugar can end up tasting so divine, khoya is added to give and extra luscious flavor to this halwa, I usually use 5 kilos of carrots every time I make it, but for your convenience I have reduced the quantity of carrots to 2 kilos…

Gajar Ka Halwa


2 kg carrots, peeled and shredded
2 liters milk
1/2 to 1 kg sugar
250 gm khoya
5-6 cardamom pods
3/4 cup ghee


In a pan add milk and shredded carrots and let it cook on medium low heat till the water dries, keep stirring once in a while. Once the water from carrots dries up and milk get thick add in sugar and cardamoms and keep stirring, when the sugar syrup starts to get dry add in the ghee and khoya. Continue cooking on medium-high heat till the ghee separates from the halwa (around 15-20 minutes). Garnish it with nuts and serve hot.


If you don’t have khoya increase the amount of milk to you add in to around 4 liters , the milk when dries up will eventually turn in to khoya or you can also use evaporated milk.
