Gajar Ka Halwa

Gajar ka Halwa, a mandatory Indian tradition to cook at home during winter, is a must-have healthy dessert. The basic ingredient used to make Gajar Halwa is carrots. Carrots are loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and fibre.

Adding milk to the Halwa adds calcium and protein to the dish. The cashews and raisins add to the protein and antioxidants in the Halwa.

And finally, the Ghee in Halwa gives you the fats required by your body to reduce those aches and pains that come along with winter and to increase the much required immunity. Always remember that food cooked with love and warmth in your kitchen is a zillion times healthier! Enjoy Gajar Ka Halwa with this simple recipe given here:


  • Red Carrots -1kg
  • Sugar – 1 cup

  • Full cream milk -1litre
