Gajar Ka Halwa


6 cup grated carrot

¼ cup milk

½ cup ricotta cheese or unsweetened khoya

1 ½ cup sugar

3 tbsp ghee

1 pinch saffron

¼ tsp cardamom powder

For garnishing

1 tbsp cashew nuts

1 tbsp almonds (slivered)

¼ tsp saffron

1 tbsp raisins


  • Pressure cook the carrot with milk and saffron.
  • Under medium heat, melt half the portion of ghee in a wide non-stick pan. When the ghee is slightly heated up, add the cooked carrot mixture and sugar.
  • The sugar would melt and make the mixture look extra watery. Continue to cook until all of the liquid disappears completely.
  • Now, add the ricotta cheese or khoya and blend well with the carrot. Cook for a few more minutes, add cardamom powder and turn off the heat.
  • In another pan, heat the remaining ghee. Tip in cashew nuts and raisins and fry until they turn golden brown and the raisins become plump. Slather them on the halwa.
  • Serve warm. Top it with some slivered almonds and a few strands of saffron just before serving.
