Gajar Ka Halwa/Carrot Halwa with Khoya

One of the easiest and the delicious halwa is always this carrot halwa. Carrot halwa makes me nostalgic and this  is the first sweet dish i have dished out when i started cooking. Whenever mom goes to grandma's native, i wont forget to make this halwa to serve my father who fond always for my carrot halwa. Its been a while i prepared carrot halwa at home, more than a year may be. Dunno why i didnt prepared them at home eventhough my fridge will always have carrots.This time i prepared my favourite carrot halwa with sugarless khoya to give a fabulous taste. I had some leftover khoya which was sitting in my fridge, i finished them by adding in this halwa. We simply loved this halwa and couldnt stop having them.

Actually i prepared a fusion cheesecake with this gajar ka halwa as the cheesecake base, do check my post of Fusion Cheesecake to get an idea about the Indianised cheesecake with carrot halwa. You can replace the khoya with sweetened condensed milk as well but however making this halwa with khoya tastes simply fantabulous. I couldnt forget the taste of this delicious gajar ka halwa even now.An easiest halwa to make at home with simple ingredients. With a help of an adult, even a child can make this halwa easily.
