This timeless carrot delight, which harmonises the essential ingredients of carrots, milk, ghee, nuts, and Nestlé MILKMAID, is way more than just a dessert. It's like a sweet reminder of home and a joyful celebration of those delightful, seasonal flavours. Plus, with our Gajar ka Halwa recipe, you can whip up a scrumptious batch in just 45 minutes.
We've made the Gajar ka Halwa recipe super easy for you by breaking it down into three easy steps and utilising only four readily available ingredients (dry fruits are optional). Nestlé MILKMAID, the secret ingredient of our Gajar ka Halwa recipe, not only simplifies the process but also significantly reduces the cooking time. It eliminates the need for khoya (which may be questionable when purchased from the market and time taking when prepared at home) and sugar, serving as the perfect binding agent that ensures the halwa achieves its ideal texture – coarse yet smooth, with a delightful milky sweetness and the warm notes of ghee.
Every spoonful of this halwa, made following our Carrot Halwa recipe, is a celebration of winter's goodness.
Beyond being a mere recipe, this Gajar ka Halwa embodies an experience. It's a nostalgic reminder of cosy evenings spent with loved ones, of laughter shared over steaming bowls, and of the simple joys that make winter special. So, let the enticing aroma of this delightful pudding fill your home, and relish the warmth of Gajar ka Halwa, one spoonful at a time.Show more > Show Less >
If your Gajar ka Halwa turns out too runny or watery, it might be due to insufficient thickening or not enough moisture evaporation from the grated carrots. However, by preparing Gajar ka Halwa with MILKMAID following our recipe, you can confidently put those concerns aside. MILKMAID acts as the perfect binding agent, ensuring you effortlessly attain the ideal texture.
Carrot Halwa can be refrigerated for about 10 to 12 days. Nevertheless, it is advisable to refrain from keeping it at room temperature for extended periods.
The best way to reheat Gajar ka Halwa is in a microwave or on the stovetop. Microwave it in short intervals, stirring between each, or warm it on low heat, stirring consistently to maintain its texture and flavour.
In the above Gajar ka Halwa recipe, be sure to incorporate the exact quantities of MILKMAID, ghee, and milk. If your halwa happens to be a tad dry, slowly introduce warm milk or ghee while stirring consistently. Cover the mixture and let it simmer over low heat until the halwa attains your preferred thickness.
