Please don''t post recipe if you have not made it yourself. You have no clue how to make gajar halwa in microwave. DO NOT add milk even if Tarla Dalal says so. It is a nightmare to vaporize all the liquid. Carrots have their own moisture and its enough to cook them. Add more milk powder if you want it to be creamy.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, Thank you for your suggestion ... There is no need to add milk powder as it doesnt taste very nice in this recipe, 15 minutes is not very long to cook a gajar ka halwa in a microwave..

Tarla Dalal    Hi Namrata, High means 100% , we have tried this recipe and it came out perfect, we hope you have stirred the halwa every 2 minutes as mentioned in the recipe.

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!
