Carrot Halwa

Carrot Halwa

Carrot halwa is a sweet dessert and it will  be very good with the combination of vanilla ice cream. I prepared this sweet for a party and also had a very good feedback on it and hence I am posting the same recipe here.

Carrot Halwa


Carrot - 2 Big sized
Milk - 1 cup
Cashews - 6
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Ghee or butter - 1 tbsp

Cooking steps

  1. Grate the carrot using a grater and make sure this comes approximately around 1 cup. If you get lesser or more than a cup, adjust the milk quantity accordingly. I prefer carrot and milk to be in 1:1 ratio
  2. In a wide pan, heat a tbsp of ghee or butter and fry cashews and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add carrot and stir well. close the lid of the pan for 5 mins and ensure the raw smell of carrot goes off completely
  4. Add milk and sugar together with the carrot in the pan and stir well till the carrot boils well(may be mushy) with the milk and it is reduced till it comes to solid form(in halwa form)
  5. Add the roasted cashews to the carrot halwa

My 2 cents

  • Adding milk is purely optional.You can just add 1/2 cup of water. But i found the carrot halwa added with milk is comparatively good in taste.
  • You can add cardomom or any essence to get a great smell.
