This is the most simple recipe of home-made Gajar Ka Halwa. Very quick to make and delicious to have warm. And it is not even very heavy!

Gajar Ka Halwa


  • 500 gms carrots (grated)
  • 6 tbsp sugar (brown sugar gives the caramalised taste)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 tbsp ghee ((clarified butter))
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 green cardamom cloves


  • Put a non-stick pan on low heat and add ghee.
  • Add cloves and cardamoms to the melted ghee and fry until the cardamoms start getting dark.
  • Add the grated carrots and fry till the water from carrots evaporates.
  • Add sugar and milk.
  • Keep frying on high heat till the milk evaporates and the carrots are really soft.
  • Once all liquid disappears lower the heat and continue to fry until the ghee rises to the top.


And voila! Gajar ka halwa is ready to eat. You can sprinkle khoya on top or have it with a bit of clotted cream on the side. Delicious!
