GAJAR KA HALWA

13

In this fast paced life, we always look forward to certain food items which demand instant cooking process. And as a result, our blog is also full of instant recipes.

But when it comes to Gajar to Halwa, we always say a Big NO to instant cooking method. Because the taste which lies in the Gajar Halwa made on slow cooking, is matchless and simply out of the world.

Although there is no complexity in the cooking process or in the availability of ingredients, but what you require is utmost patience and esteemed love.

From beginning to end, it took us about 3 hours in making this Gajar Halwa and at last, we had a bowl full of beautiful aromatic hot Gajar ka Halwa.

We have tried to make it little healthy but adding the brown sugar instead of regular sugar without entering into any compromise with the taste.

    1. Thank you so much Ashu. One becomes miser in finishing it at once. So spoonfuls for the last 2 days are justified👍😊
