Gajar Ka Halwa Recipe


Gajar Ka Halwa – Rich Indian dessert made with carrots, milk , sugar, aromatic cardamom powder and loaded with dry fruits.

I have not added khoya to this recipe. Instead I have allowed milk to boil along with carrots itself and convert into milk solids. I have used toned milk but you can use full fat milk as well. I have used an assortment of soaked almonds, raisins and pistachio. You can choose any combination of dry fruits.


  • 700 Gms. Carrot (Grated)
  • 1 Cup Toned Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Condensed Milk
  • 5-6 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Assorted Dry Fruits
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Cardamom Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Ghee


  1. Heat ghee in a big kadai and add grated carrots.
  2. Mix well and cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add milk and condensed milk to kadai.
  4. Cover kadai with a lid. Let carrots cook in milk at a low flame.
  5. After 45 minutes, add sugar and cook till mixture turns dry.
  6. Add cardamom powder and dry fruits.
  7. Cook for 2-3 minutes and turn off the heat.
  8. Transfer to a dessert bowl and serve it hot.
