Gajar Ka Halwa/ Carrot Pudding

Last Updated on

According to BM#23, I choose carrot theme for 1st
week, under this I prefer to prepare Gajar Ka Halwa, because it very healthy
and yumm. You can preserve this halwa for 2-3 days in winter days in airtight
glass with lid in freeze.
For enhancing this taste you can add mawa/ khoya or
condense milk to more thickness and richness. For garnishing you can add
chopped cashews and pistas on the top of halwa and also garnish with silver
warq. As per cooking view, gajar ka halwa is very time-consuming halwa but
still very simple to prepare compare to lentil based halwa which takes more physical
power too.
The halwa/ halva mean sweet which mostly made by
Indian on every occasion of happiness, for halwa there is no need of any
celebration…. But in winter season or festival time, we all made halwa first in
own home. There is two type of halwa one is flour based and second is nut
In India, there are various types of Halwa/halva or
Pudding you can say like gajar ka halwa, moong dal ka halwa, sooji ka halwa or
aatte ka halwa. This time I prefer carrot halwa which generally every Indian
made in winter season.

300 ml Milk

  1. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!

  2. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites
    for about a year and am concerned about switching to
    another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any help would be really appreciated!
