Carrot Halwa – Gajar Halwa

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: 2 cups
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: Dessert


  • Fresh Carrots – shredded – 4 cups
  • Milk – 3 cups (whole milk gives richness, but you can use reduced fat too)
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Ghee (clarified butter) – 8 tbsp. (approximately 1/2 cup)
  • Cashew nuts – 10
  • Cardamom pods (elachi / elakkai) – 1 (or 1/8 tsp. cardamom powder)



Mmmnnnhhh….. How I wished for a second spoon… second spoon of Warm, Yummy and ‘Ghee’-ey Carrot Halwa. She said, ‘Appa came, so mom made them this morning. <with pride> Is it good?… <in shock> ayoo… miss is coming…’ … ‘Tuppp’! She hurriedly closed her tiffin box tightly. I cursed, why the teachers always show punctually for their classes? Ch, if only my friend and I managed to sneak a minute before the assembly dispersed, I would have succeeded getting a second spoon of the Carrot Halwa from her tiffin box. While the fellow class mates were unloading their books and notebooks from their bag on to the desk I imagined myself to be INVISIBLE to the entire class just to load spoon after spoon with Carrot Halwa and unload them into my mouth. When the class crowd was obediently listening to the ‘dissection of hibiscus flower’, I was busy dissecting the ingredients in the Carrot Halwa. OMG! I couldn’t get rid of Sharmilee’s carrot halwa for the whole first hour class of a Monday morning.




Immediately once that class hour got over <and the next teacher was walking steadfast towards the classroom> I requested Sharmi to get the carrot halwa recipe written from her mom. Huh, that happened years ago. Sharmilee is one of my good friends at school. Her dad used to work from Ooty and visit their family every week-end. She said her dad brings loads of fresh carrots from the hill. Yeah, the kind of Carrots colored naturally with orange shade, sweet and crunchy, fresh from the grounds with their leaves intact.


carrots washed and peeled for making carrot halwa

While schooling I got just two recipes hand-written from my friends. One was this carrot halwa recipe and the other was kutti biscuit recipe (known as shakkarpara), rest were hear it; leave it type recipes which I did not care to write in a notebook <about which I sigh badly today>. Sharmi’s Carrot fudge was silky <which means, my cheekbones were not involved while eating. The halwa slid themselves down into my stomach> because the carrots were ground before making the halwa. Her mom wrote that we can make carrot halwa without grinding the carrots too. <Self-note: Test Carrot Halwa recipe by grinding the carrots>.


This paper note of Sharmi’s carrot halwa recipe stayed treasured in one of my books for years. The first time I tried this Carrot halwa recipe it turned out to be a disaster. Disaster: because my halwa had raw smell of the carrots in them. The Best Carrot Halwa is one which encapsulates the flavor of the carrots <remember, it’s the flavor of the carrots and not the raw smell>. That’s why we should not overlook the points given in any recipe. Her carrot fudge recipe said, ‘fry (sauté) the carrots nicely’. Here, ‘nicely’ interpreted to: ‘until pale’ or ‘until the raw smell strips off’, which I did not understand then. Once the raw smell vanishes, the sweet smell of the carrots appears. This is where you begin to add the milk. Fine fine… I get it; you cannot understand these tricks until I explain the recipe for Carrot Halwa. So, coming to the point: How to make Carrot Halwa?



How to make Carrot Halwa  with Step by Step pictures

Step 1.
Wash, peel and grate the carrots. I used the medium blade in the mandoline to grate. I measured the carrots loosely but heaped.carrot-halwa-recipe-1

Step 2.
Place a wide-mouthed, heavy-bottomed vessel in Medium-High heat. [Wide-mouthed vessel so that the carrots get cooked fast and uniform. This way you can save gas, time and energy. I did not have a wide-mouthed vessel. Used my pressure cooker]. Add 4 tbsp. ghee.

Step 3.
Add the shredded carrots into the ghee and mix well.
carrot-halwa-step-by-step-1  desert-using-carrots-1

Step 4.
Fry until the carrots turn pale. Compare picture above and below. Do you see the color difference in the carrots? Carrots have turned pale which means they won’t have raw smell. You’ll now feel a kind of sweet smell from the carrots. This process takes around 10 minutes. Add the milk.
best-carrot-halwa-recipe-1  classic-indian-dessert-carrot-halua-1

Step 5.
I used 3 cups of milk. i.e. enough milk to submerge the carrots so that they get cooked well in the milk. Allow the milk to boil. Takes 5 minutes.

gajar-ka-halwa-recipe-halva-halua-1  how-to-make-carrot-halwa-recipe-1

Step 6.
Let the carrots get cooked well in the milk. The carrots should drink in all the milk. This will take 20-30 minutes. Stir the content from time to time to prevent scorching. [Duration will sure come down if you use a wide wok. btw, is anybody looking at my scorched vessel? I’ve to get non-stick set <note to the husband>]

Step 7.
Once the milk is completely drunk, add in the sugar. Mix well. Reduce flame to Medium. Once sugar is added, the content tends to liquefy (picture in the right). Need not alarm. Stir at regular intervals. We need to wait until the mixture turns thick. This will take around 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile work on Step 8 and 9.

Step 8.
Place a small wok in medium flame. Roast the cashews will 1 tsp. ghee. When the cashews turn golden, turn off stove and remove the cashews from wok.

Step 9.
I like to have my cashews broken. If you prefer to have it whole, please do. Remove seeds from one cardamom pod and powder it. [I powder it by placing the seeds in a tumbler and pound it hard with roti roller pin. If you have readymade cardamom powder use 1/4 tsp.]
 cashewnuts-carrot-halwa-1  carrot-halua-recipe-akistani-sweet-1

Step 10.
So where were we? Yeah, we were waiting for the sugar to get thick. See, the carrot mixture became thick. Now, add the remaining ghee/clarified butter (4 tbsp.)

ghajar-halwa-step-by-step-recipe-1  recipe-carrot-halwa-ghajar-halva-1

Step 11.
Add the roasted cashews and powdered cardamom. Mix them well.

Step 12.
Cook the halwa stirring occasionally until the added ghee separates out. This takes 10 more minutes. [Do not wait for the halwa to become thick. 10 minutes after adding ghee should be enough. The right consistency is when you mix the mixture, it should stir together forming a mass.]


Serve the Carrot Halwa hot, preferably warm. [Once the Halwa reaches room temperature pack them in a container and you can refrigerate. I had them for a week. Hey, take time to read the tips on garnishing and serving below.]




3Ts [ Tips | Tricks | Tactics and Secrets ] to make Gajar Halwa

Serving suggestions: Carrot Halwa popularly known as ‘Gajar ka Halwa’ in the menu cards of Indian Restaurants is often paired with Vanilla Ice cream while serving. Until few weeks back I preferred having only warm carrot halwa, so I microwave chilled halwa for 10-15 seconds before serving. One day I was impatient to warm the chilled carrot halwa and ate it right from the refrigerator. Know what I realized? Chilled version of Carrot Halwa tasted even greater. So serve them warm or chilled.




I used pounded pistachios to garnish. That’s completely optional. I used pista only to add glamor to the photograph. You can use skinned, chopped almonds if looking for alternate garnishing ideas. If you are making this carrot halwa for special guests do not bother about garnishing to impress them, the carrot halwa can handle them stand-alone.




1 cup of sugar should sure give enough sweetness to 4 cups of shredded carrots for making this halwa. Once the halwa is made and hours pass (say, 2 hours), the sugar gets mingled completely with the carrots and ghee tending to add more sweetness and taste to the halwa. But if you prefer adding 1/8 or ¼ cups of more sugar, you can do it. Have in mind, if you’re carrots are naturally very sweet, stick to 1 cup sugar for 4 cups shredded carrots ratio for this recipe.




This Gajar ka Halua attended the potluck party at Jeev’s office. ‘It is a SuperDuper hit!’ said the husband.  Use a wide-mouthed vessel so that the carrots will be cooked fast. It took really a long time for me to cook large quantity of carrots since I had no heavy-bottomed vessel with a wide mouth. Or opt for acting smart while selecting dessert recipes for your get-together and potluck parties, like my easy Mango-pie recipe.

Dear Readers,
Sure the recipe tastes far great than the pictures shown. To show you the process in making the recipe with step-by-step pictures and to show you the outcome of the recipes with some cool photographs, I spend quite a lot of time in photographing it without minding the food getting dry or limp or not-so-hot-enough for us to eat (or sometimes without minding that we are hungry :)

But your comments can make me forget all my tiresome efforts I spend in deciding, preparing, cooking, shooting and composing a recipe post just for you! If you find the recipe useful please leave us a comment. I would also like to know if you tried the recipe and if the recipe came out well. Even if it didn’t, tell me that. I can guess or figure out what might have gone wrong or if I missed out to put any essential points in my recipe post. You can share the pictures of the tried recipes in our Facebook page or you can e-mail us!

Thank you for your visit.

    Carrot halwa is one of my all time fav. We usually get orange carrots here all year round but only in winters we get red carrots and I wait eagerly for these carrots to arrive in the market. Only the grating part is the most tedious which I conveniently hand over to my husband 🙂 Your halwa is looking gorgeous.

    • Raji,
      Thank you 🙂
      I did not realize to direct the ‘tediious’ job of grating carrots to the husband until last time I made Carrot Halwa. He truly was exhausted 😀 😀 😀
      I wish I get to see those red carrots here….

  • Mahi

    Superb halwa! looks so good! Its worth than frying(!) that long Meenakshi! 😉

    /Self-note: Test Carrot Halwa recipe by grinding the carrots>./ Once I tasted that kind of carrot halwa, but to me it tasted like Asoka halwa..I prefer just grating than grinding! Love to bite some crunchy carrot bits on the way! 🙂

    You wont believe, I was thinking of making this last week, but somehow ended up with cinnamon scones. hahaha! 🙂

    • Hi Mahi, thank you for the comments.
      Was about to try the other version of carrot halwa then checked your comments… So may be I will try it out later .

      Cinnamon scones?!! Coming…. 🙂

      • Mahi

        கேரட்டை வதக்கி, பால் சேர்ததும் குக்கரை மூடி ஒரு விசில் வைச்சிருந்தா ஈஸியா வேலை முடிஞ்சிருக்காது??! 🙂

        போனவாரம் இந்த ரெசிப்பி பத்தி இன்னொரு தோழி கிட்ட பேசிட்டு இருந்தப்ப அவங்க அப்படிதான் சொன்னாங்க மீனாக்ஷி. கேரட்டை வதக்க கூட வேணாம், பால் சேர்த்து குக்கர்ல வேகவைச்சா போதும், அப்புறம் குக்கர் திறந்து சர்க்கரை, நெய், நட்ஸ் சேர்த்தா போதும்னாங்க. மல்லிகா பத்ரிநாத் புக்-ல இருந்த ரெசிப்பியாம். நானும் ட்ரை பண்ணிப் பார்த்து(எப்பன்னு கேக்கக்குடாது :)) சொல்லறேன்.

        அப்புறம் உங்க பைனாப்பிள் அப்சைட் டவுன் கேக் எப்ப வருது? அந்த டைட்டிலே catchy-யா மீனாக்ஷி டச்-உடன் இருக்குது! :))

        • Okay…. what if I do not have a pressure cooker and wanted to make carrot halwa desperately? What if in spite of having a pressure cooker it suddenly went dead after I decide to make carrot halwa? … 😀 😀 😀 ok ok… enough hiding my ignorance over the carrot halwa recipe 😛 Will sure try out this ‘Quick’ method of making carrot halwa Mahi. Send my thanks to your friend too for the recipe.
          About that pineapple upside-down cake….he he he… title நான் வைகல மஹி. என்னோட neighbor ஒரு நாள் bake பண்ணாங்க. I came to know about it only then. I thought I will post Mushroom biryani recipe next. So after that I will post pineapple upside-down cake.

  • reshmiok


    was thinking of making this recipe for a get together tomorrow.I have to prepare it for around 15 people.How much carrot shud i take and also can i make it today and refrigerate it?Its an outdoor event and wil have to be in sun for around 6 hours.hope it wont get spoiled.

    • Reshmiok,
      You sure can make and refrigerate once the carrot halwa comes to room temperature. I made carrot halwa for 20 people as dessert. Be prepared to stand a little longer time in front of the stove. You can take the dessert to outdoor, they wont spoil because we will be cooking it with ghee and sugar for long time over stove. For 15 people we’ll need around 20 medium sized carrots (as shown in the 3rd picture in this post). Once they’re grated they’ll become more. Also if possible use a wide-mouthed pan so that the carrots will be cooked fast. I’ll be online for you the whole day. You may ask me questions about the recipe if you have.

      • reshmiok

        Thanks mangala for the fast reply :)…i didnt have much hope while posting d question since i knew it was a last minute question,..even i dont have a wide mouthed pan which can hold this much.i was planning 2 ,make it in a cooker similar to that one in the pic of urs..

        • Reshmi, since it was night here I was not able to reply fast 🙂 Yeah you can make carrot halwa with the pressure cooker Reshmi. I made that large quantity of carrot halwa in pressure cooker only, but it will sure take lot of time and gas/electricity. However, you may reduce the time if you “Pressure Cook” the carrots with milk for say 5 whistles. Then carry on the steps from Step 6.

          • reshmiok

            Hey….it came out well..,even though it didnt become hard(so that i cud cut into pieces),it tasted yummy..everyone told it was tasty.,thank u very much 4 the recipe as well as the support

          • Resh,
            Thank you for writing me the feedback for this Carrot Halwa recipe 🙂 Carrot halwa will be loose only. I would say “it HAS to be loose only”. However, if you wanted it to firm to cut into pieces, then we need to pack them tight (after bringing them to room temperature) in a rectangular box, close it and put it in refrigerator. Take them out after say 6 hrs or overnight and cut them into pieces. Yum. Thank you once again. 🙂

  • zara

    Great recipe…much easier to follow then one by sanjeev kapoor..seeing step by step pictures really helps thanks

    • O Zara,
      I’m flattered 🙂 More step by step pictorial recipes on the way….

  • Aishwarya

    thank you for the recipies. Having pictures along with steps makes it easy to understand.

    • My motive is to cater my recipes like how a mother teaches cooking to her daughter or son 🙂 Thank you Aishwarya.

  • Hansini

    what type of ghee do we use…Is vegetable ghee suitable for this

    • Hi Hansini,
      Glad you asked me. I do ghee from the butter (unsalted) got from Cow’s milk. By vegetable ghee do you mean vanaspathi (dalda)? I would suggest you not to use vegetable ghee (dalda/vanaspati). Vanaspati has a totally different aroma than the real ghee. I never tried any sweets using dalda. However, if you have no other way, use very little of it in the recipe. Say 4 tbsp in this recipe.

  • Ravisha Singh

  • keerthi

  • Akshay

    I just tried this recipe substituting soy milk and it was also delicious. Because my soy milk was already sweetened, I used about half the granulated sugar. Came out really nicely.

    • Hello Akshay,
      Thank you so much for trying out this Carrot Halwa recipe. Also appreciate your adaptations. Do share your recipe photograph in GoJingalala’s facebook page: Don’t hesitate to tag yourself and your friends!

  • Mareah

    your pans specially the one you fried cashews in and also the stove needs a good clean…a tasty dish doesnot only need stories and silly talk but clean pans and pots as well..good luck 🙂

    • I know many readers who visited my recipe pages must have had the thoughts same as you. But I found them to be more concerned only about the recipe. But sweetheart, thanks for the note Will make sure the utensils which I publish are neat, tidy, sexy and gorgeous too for you! If you are interested to know….I’ve spoken more on my utensils and cleaning in my many post such as: Mutton Gravy, Kitchen gloves And wait, I know the pan and stove which u talked about are not “NEAT” but,I know how “CLEAN” my vessels, the stove and the kitchen are. If I had to spend time standing and scrubbing the “stains” to make the pots look shiny, I should leave my family starve for every meal. As of now, I prefer just a good CLEAN. When I become a Gourmet Chef or a Rachel Ray to endorse cookwares, I can pay more attention to the ‘NEATNESS’ of the vessels and stove. ..

  • Rashmi Anish

    Awesome receipe and the pictures sure makes it so easy… I took the receipe 2 weeks back and prepared it the very next day and the result is I ended up preparing it already 3 times in 2 weeks coz my family members liked it so much they just go get carrot and say “Please prepare carrot halwa for me”. Thanks to you Mangala 🙂

    • O Rashmi….
      Thank you so so sooo much 🙂 Thanks for believing in my Carrot Halwa recipe, thanks for coming back and logging in the feedback, thanks to your family too :). Would love to post your Carrot halwa pictures on my Facebook wall. Or you yourself can do it in : GoJingalala’s facebook page . Make sure you tag your loved ones in the picture!

  • Fatima

    We don’t get red carrots here, and the halwa made with orange carrots doesn’t look nice at all, seems to take away half the taste…. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Fatima,
      I haven’t tried Carrot halwa with red carrots. But made several times with normal Orange carrots. I can assure of the taste when you make Halwa with Orange Carrots. Just try with small quantity.

  • Sashank

    Hi Mangala!
    Thanks for your superb recipe! But the thing is at the end when we have to add ghee, I think instead of 4tbsp it’s better to not add at all! ‘Coz it turned out too oily… Anyway, it’s a hit and this is the first time I cooked and mum’s proud! Thanks a lot! 🙂

  • Ash

    Hi, how many people does your ingredients feed? Need full list of ingredients for about 15 servings.

  • Divya

    Actually I made gajar halwa few days back and thereafter i need to travel.Since last 2 days it was packed in air tight plastic box. Today, when I opened that box, it smelt sour and tasted sour even. So,could you help me with any recipe to get it back with its original halwa flavour.

    • Halo Divya,
      Was the halwa kept out or in the refrigerator? I think the sour taste may come because of the reaction of milk. Before serving heat a small pan, add the required amount of halwa, little more sugar, little more ghee. Mix until they melt and mix together, just few minutes. Serve. Try it.

  • Melisha Benny
