Like the evergreen filmy numbers of the 70s, Gajar Halwa is a traditional hit you cannot resist! However, even a single serving can be dynamite for weight-watchers, as it is loaded with ghee and khoya.
Here is a Low-Calorie Gajar Halwa that will please your palate at just 109 kcal and 4.8 gm of fat per serving. Steaming the carrots in the steamer decreases the amount of ghee needed. Likewise, replacing khoya with a small quantity of milk powder, and eliminating almonds does away with more calories. It’s time to pamper your sweet tooth now!
Serve with Low Fat Rabri for a creamy mouthfeel.
