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.

Leaving the grated carrots in the slow cooker then later adding a little bit of milk worked out well for me. In the morning transferred into an open pan over high heat dried the liquid added sugar and a little bit of Ghee. Kept stirring and added sunflower seeds. Well happy with it.

great dessert option for weight watchers.... without the use of any mava and restricted qty of sugar. pressure cooking the carrots reduces the cooking time as well...
