As you can see, there is A LOT of carrots involved in this heavenly looking pudding but don’t get any wrong assumptions — this dessert is strictly not for those who’re counting their carbs. Gajar Ka Halwa (carrot pudding) is one of the most drooled-over desserts of the subcontinent. It’s not just a sweet but a tradition that instantly makes thousands of Indians and Pakistanis homesick.
For Muslims in the subcontinent — cooking and distributing this particular halwa is a symbol of merriment that often marks new beginnings. Every religious occasion is kind of less sweet without this dessert. Can you imagine Shabe-Barat or Eid ul-Fitr without a sizable bowl of gajar ka halwa? We can’t.
If we've made you hungry JUST by talking about it then watch famous Indian chef, Sanjeev Kapoor add his own twist of deliciousness to an otherwise 5 ingredient dish. It’s grated carrot cooked in heavenly ghee and sugar and topped with khoya (chunks of dried whole milk).
