Gajar Halwa-The Ultimate Dessert

First time when Jeet ( my husband ) came with his parents to ask my hands to my parents, he had a demand."I need Gajar Halwa". (It's a Love Come Arrange Marriage) At that time I really didn't how to prepare it. I asked my mom and any how prepared it. But after that I have prepared many times both over flame and in microwave, taste doesn't differ irrespective of which medium it is cooked. But I feel easier and time saving in microwave. 


Carrot - 1 kg (finely grated)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Nestle Milkmaid - 1/2 tin (instead use Khoya 100 gms)
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Green Cardamom - 3 ( only seeds powdered)
Cashew - 2 tbsp (chopped)
Raisins - 2 tbsp

  1. Finely grate the carrots and keep it in a MSW bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup milk and 3/4 cup sugar and microwave it for 15 minutes, stirring twice in between.
  3. Add the milkmaid and ghee and microwave again for 10 minutes, stirring once in between.
  4. Now add the chopped nuts, raisins and elaichi and microwave it for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with garnishing.
