Gajar Ka Halwa / Carrot Halwa (Microwave method)

Gajar Ka Halwa / Carrot Halwa (Microwave method)

A delicious halwa, made of grated carrot, ghee and sugar. Basic recipe from Tarla Dalal !!

Preparation Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 6 min.
Serves : 3  - 4


2 cups / 400 ml (Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity) grated carrot  (4 medium sized carrots)

1 tablespoon melted ghee

3 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon milkmaid  sweetened condensed milk (my version)

1/4 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder


In a microwave safe glass bowl, combine the ghee and grated carrots. Cover with a lid and microwave on HIGH (750 W) for 4 minutes.

Add the  milkmaid condensed milk , sugar, cardamom powder and mix well. Cover with a lid and microwave on HIGH (750 W) for 2 minutes (My suggestion - or microwave again for 1 minute on High (750 W) heat until the water dries up and halwa thickens).

Serve hot, garnished with the sliced pistachios, cashewnuts and raisins.

Thanks Kathleen Richardson for comment on Carrot Halwa. Adding sweetened condensed milk (1 tablespoon) will give an additional flavour and thickness. Very easy and tasty halwa ready within 7 minutes. Please try this recipe :) Thanks again for liking Niya's world recipe page.
