Gajar ka halwa is the traditional sweet dish in all Bollywood movies where all heroes favorite dish is maa ke haath ka gajar ka halwa. I still have no idea how they can make Gajar ka halwa taste same all year round.
Winter is incomplete without gajar ka halwa. In winter carrots are moist, sweet, long, red and these carrots will give best taste to your gajar ka halwa (Carrot pudding in english). Winter is almost about to end and what better way to end it with by making Maa ke style ka gajar ka halwa (Carrot pudding the way my mom used to make).
Gajar ka halwa also known as gajorer halwa, is a carrot-based sweet dessert pudding from the Indian subcontinent. It is made by placing grated carrot in a pot containing a specific amount of water, milk and sugar and then cooking while stirring regularly. It is often served with a garnish of almonds and pistachios. The nuts and other items used are first sauted in ghee, a South Asian clarified butter.
The dessert is traditionally eaten during all of the festivals in India, mainly on the occasion of Diwali, Holi, Eid al-Fitr and Raksha Bandhan. It is served hot during the winter.
