Instead of using khoya, I have cooked the carrots in milk, to bring about the same creamy taste and texture, yet save on the time taken to make the khoya.


Voila, Gajar ka Halwa is ready in minutes.

Tarla ji, I have to make this in large quantities. Like for 40 ppl. Do I need to fry the carrots first or can I skip the step ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Gayathri, The sauteing of the carrots is important.. if it is not possible to do in one batch, make in 2 batches.. but do not skip the step..

Thank you Mam for this recipe. I am newly married and wanted to surprize my Mom without asking the recipe. My hubby is not much of a sweet tooth but enjoyed two bowls at a go. It came up at the perfect flavour not too much sweet and yet delicious. Please keep sharing such wonderful recipes. :) :) :)???
