Rich Indian Carrot fudge, Gajar Ka Halwa also known as Gajrela is prepared with grated Carrot, nuts, milk and Clarified Butter

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 kg Carrot (I use smaller one)
  • 500g Khowa / Mawa / Solidified Milk
  • 150ml Full Cream Milk
  • 100g Dry fruits (Cashew Nut, Almond, Pistachios, and Raisin)
  • 200g Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Green Cardamom Powder
  • 100g Ghee/ Clarified Butter

Instructions

  1. Wash the Carrots and peel the skin.
  2. Grate the carrots using a grater or a food processor.
  3. Now take the grated Carrot in a deep bottom pan along with the milk and start cooking on low flame with a lid on.
  4. The Carrot will release moisture after 2-3 minutes of cooking.
  5. Cook by covering the pan with a lid till the Carrot absorb the milk entirely.
  6. Add grated Mawa along with the Dry fruits and mix thoroughly.
  7. Add powdered Green Cardamom as well.
  8. Cook on low flame for 5 minutes and stir in between.
  9. Once the moisture soaked add Sugar and give a thorough mix.
  10. Add Ghee and cook until the Sugar dissolves completely.
  11. Switch the flame off once the Gajar Ka Halwa emits nice smell and thick in texture.
  12. Serve it hot.

Notes

  • Reduce the amount of Ghee, Mawa, and Dryfruits as per your taste or if you wish to make a low-calorie version.
  • Mawa can be replaced with Condensed milk and in that case, reduce sugar to half.
    To decrease the time, you can make the Halwa in a pressure cooker as well.
