Gajar ka Halwa has a traditional charm that continues to please every generation of Indians! Here is a quick and tasty version of Gajar ka Halwa made using the pressure cooker.

Cooked in milk, the carrots acquire a rich taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture, which are intensified by the addition of mava. Because milk and mawa are used, the recipe does not require much ghee, yet it has the same old rich taste and luxuriant mouth-feel.

Enjoy the Gajar ka Halwa warm. If you want to try this recipe without using a pressure cooker, try this version Microwave Gajar ka Halwa and if you want to make it in the microwave oven, go for this recipe Gajar ka Halwa .

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. :) :) :)???
