Carrot halwa

Carrot halwa is a rich Indian dessert. This is made with carrot, milk and a generous amount of ghee. I made this recently for durga pooja festival.



Carrot – 1/2 kg ( 8 to 9 carrots)

Milk – 4 cups

Ghee – 4 to 5 tbsp

Cashews – 10 nos

Cloves – 2 nos

Sugar – 2 1/2 cups


  1. Peel and grate the carrots. you can also use chopper ( I used kenstar mini chopper)
  2. In a kadai , heat the milk. Add the grated carrots when the milk starts to boil.
  3. The carrots should cook well in the milk. This may take around 15 mins.
  4. Scrap the milk residue at the sides of the kadai and mix well with the carrot milk mixture.
  5. Before the milk completely evaporates from the mixture, add sugar and ghee.
  6. Mix well and cook till the milk completely evaporates.
  7. In a seperate pan, heat ghee. Add the cloves, green cardamom and cashew.
  8. Fry the cashews till golden brown and add this to the carrot milk mixture.
  9. Now the carrot halwa is ready to be served warm or chilled. It goes well with vanilla icecream.


  • You can increase the amount of ghee as per ur wish. More ghee gives a richer taste.
