An Indian and Pakistani delicacy called Gajar ka Halwa (Gajar Halwa) is created with milk and carrots. For our family and many others in South Asia, it has long been a go-to winter dessert and comfort meal. While each family has its unique recipe and additions, the basic ingredients usually remain the same. The ingredients for a Gajar ka Halwa include red carrots, ghee, sugar, cardamom seeds, and milk (or a milk substitute). Typically, nuts are used as garnish.
The red carrot is one of the many culinary treasures that the winter season delivers. We used to wait for the weather to become colder and the carrots to get sweeter as a child. Once the carrots have been boiled down, the sweet flavor and texture are out of this world. When eaten warm on a chilly winter day, it almost turns into a fudgy consistency and becomes really delightful.
