My favorite dessert when dining on Indian cusine. I was excited to find such a simple-to-prepare recipe here. The first batch was superb - just exactly like what I'm served at restaurants. I still had a large quantity of mava (and an uncertain shelf-life) so I used all that remained for a second try - expanding amounts of other ingredients correspondingly. The cooking time expansion I guessed at (four times the recommended lengths in the microwave - roughly equal to the multiplier for the ingredients) and it seemed to work all right. The big problem for me was grating all that carrot - it wore me out.

I did not expect the microwave recipe to over take the good old gas one...but I must say i am surprised! It looked reallly nice and reddish orange and the sweetness was perfect. not chewy either! Faster way of making gajar ka halwa!
