Gajar Ka Halwa/ Carrot Pudding

Gajar Ka Halwa/
Indian Carrot Pudding
Hi Friends,
Gajjar ka Halwa name is enough to tempt you. I am not aware about any Indian (specially north Indian) family who don't enjoy this halwa in every winter whether they will make it at home, they will wait for some function (where it ill be a must in sweets section) or buy it from some famous store but they will enjoy it at least once every winter. Actually making it is a bit laborious work so people who lack time or are lazy they move to some famous store to buy it.
I am a big fan of it since childhood. My mom use to make this in every winter. There are so many ways to make it. Authentic way is laborious so people now started making it in milk to ease there work as it requires less stirring in between. Today i am going to make it authentic way as i was having ample of time to make it. I made it my mom's way. Soon i will post other methods also. Till then enjoy it.

Red Carrot- 2 kg
Ghee- 2 tbsp
Sugar-2 cups
Khoa/Khoa/Mawa/Solidify Condense Milk-200 gm
Dry fruits- 2 tbsp (i used cashew and raisins)

Take some juicy carrots

peel and wash them

grate them

Now gather all ingredients for halwa

heat half ghee in large vessel

add all grated carrot

keep on stirring it for 15 minutes

add half of the sugar

mix well and half of the ghee also

mix well and keep on stirring

See juice is oozing out 
Mix well and keep on cooking and stirring

see all juice evaporated after its almost cooked

add half of the khoa/mawa

mix well and cook for more 10 minutes

Now add dry fruits

mix well

 add rest of the grate mawa

mix well and cook for further 5 minutes

Your halwa is done



  1. You can increase the quantity of sugar and ghee as per your taste and preference.
  2. You can cook carrots in milk and when it evaporates and carrots are cooked add khoa/mava. I prefer it making this way.
  3. You can use any dry fruit like almonds, coconut etc but i prefer adding raisins and cashews so its totally up to you what do you want to add in it.
Hope you will like it
