Gaajar ka halwa

Gajrun Jo Seero or Gaajar ka halwa is arguably the most loved Indian dessert, with mind boggling flavors of red juicy Delhi carrots, reduced milk, green cardamom and sugar. Some prefer to just boil carrots and milk and reduce the mixture, while some prefer to first bhuno the carrots in some ghee or vegetable oil to get more pronounced flavors and dark orange to reddish tinge.A wonderful winter treat,tastes good whether hot or cold!
