Why I Love This Recipe

Gajar (Carrot) Halwa is a most special dessert which is a popular item in Indian households, especially in the winter season. It is not an exaggeration to state that India’s love for this Ghee laden dessert knows no bounds. For many Indian homes, winter is synonymous with Gajar Halwa. Its aroma, flavour, and richness spell indulgence, and one cannot be satiated with one serving.
