Tis the Season for Gajar ka Halwa!


With winter comes a long list of delicious food and drinks. Dry fruits, coffee, pumpkin spice muffins and my personal favourite, Gajar ka Halwa (carrot pudding)!

This year I decided to get my hands dirty and try this microwavable version of the sweet comforting treat 🙂

This is prepared in just fifteen to twenty minutes if you have all the ingredients at hand.


  • 500 grams or 2 cups grated carrots/gajar
  • 125 ml or 1 cup DayFresh Full Fat Milk
  • 5 to 6 tablespoon sugar
  • 125 ml or 1 cup fresh khoya (evaporated milk)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon ghee
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp almond, pistachios or cashew slices for garnishing
  • 2 tbsp cream
Step 1:
Add the grated carrots and ghee and microwave on high for 2.5 minutes.
Step 2:
Now add DayFresh full fat milk with 4.5% fat content, sugar, khoya, cream and cardamom powder and mix. Leave the mix at room temperature for about 5 minutes to finish the cooking process and stabilize the temperature.
Step 3:
Garnish with whichever dry fruits you like best. I prefer Cashew Nuts.
Step 4:
You can serve this either hot or cold according to your preferance.
I hope you like this recipe! Do try it at home and let me know how it turned out 🙂
