  • Origin of Gajar ka Halwa

    Gajar ka halwa is an Indian dessert originating in the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent. The dessert was first discovered in Punjab and later gained prominence as an incredible dessert type in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and worldwide. Grated carrot is mixed with sugar, milk, and water and cooked slowly until the milk is absorbed. You can add dry fruits and milk solids (mava) for a richer taste.

    What are the Health Benefits of Gajar ka Halwa? 

    Here’s why you must have gajar ka halwa benefits in the winter season. 

    • The hero ingredient of the recipe, i.e., carrots, is rich in Vitamin A, beta carotene, and fiber. This helps in improving eye health, aids digestion, and improves overall immunity. 
    • The milk content in the halwa adds to its nutritional benefits. Milk is an excellent source of protein and calcium, which helps in improving bone density.
    • The dash of ghee helps maintain skin health and strengthens bones.
    • Fried dry fruits in the halwa make an excellent source of fiber, omega-3, protein, and other essential nutrients. 

    Preparation Method for Gajar ka Halwa Recipe

    Step 1:

    Wash 500 gms or 1/2 kg of carrots. Peel their skin and finely grate them using a multipurpose grater.

    Step 2:

    On low heat, add 10 pistachios, 7-8 almonds, 15-20 raisins, 10-12 cashews to a pan. Fry them, adding a teaspoonful of ghee.

    Step 3:

    Take a deep cauldron or a suitable cooking utensil and heat milk over a mild or moderate flame.

    Step 4:

    Add grated carrots to boiling milk. Simmer carrots in milk until they start absorbing the milk and the milk turns thick.

    Step 5:

    Stir and cook the carrots on a medium flame. Keep a watch or continue stirring to prevent the burning of halwa at the bottom. Be super cautious towards the end, as the milk gets completely absorbed by the grated carrot.

    Step 6:

    Once the milk is fully absorbed, add half a cup of sugar and continue cooking the halwa. Once you add the sugar, the halwa shall turn gooey again. Keep stirring and cook until the sugar is wholly dissolved for a best gajar ka halwa recipe.

    Step 7:

    Finally, add a spoonful of ghee and fried nuts to the halwa. Cook for a minute and serve hot.

    Note & Pro Cooking Tips

    Note

    Gajar ka halwa recipe is easy and can be quickly made at home. Using a few simple ingredients that you usually store in your kitchen, like sugar, milk, water, and carrot, you can prepare a delicious gajar ka halwa in no time. Have on your apron as I guide you to making a super scrumptious Indian desi delight. 

     

    Pro Tips

    • Pick younger and fresh carrots that are less fibrous for the halwa. Carrots with high fiber may give a different texture and flavor. Tender carrots are highly preferred for their melt-in-mouth taste. 
    • Use whole-fat milk for the best taste. Whole-fat milk adds a creamy taste and enhances the texture of your recipe. 
    • You can add mava or milk solids along with milk for a richer flavor. This adds to the sweetness, and you can decrease the sugar content to half when using milk solids along with whole-fat milk. 
    • I’ve mentioned quite a few times to continue stirring the halwa; otherwise, milk gets burned. Do not leave your recipe unattended while cooking.
