    In all most, 5 out of ten Hindi movies the name of this sweet...delicious..famous sweet dish is mentioned...:D Traditional,halwa required lots of ghee,khoya,sugar and time too...I love that version too,but just to save some of my time and calorie,I made this one,as I wanted to eat this sweet,bcoz you know friends,in India,winter season & Gajar Ka Halwa go hand in hand:))))))


    • 500 gram red carrot
    • 1 cup skimmed milk
    • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup or to taste
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar or palm sugar

    1. In a micro safe container add grated carrots along with milk and micro cook for 6 minutes; stir in between or till all milk is absorbed in carrots.Add ghee and mix well and micro cook for 1 min.
    2. In a bowl mix orange juice,honey,brown sugar,saffron and clove and cinnamon powder and mix in carrot mixture,mix well and micro cook for 6 minutes; stir in between.

    4. NOTE:If you wish one can avoid ghee,it is for luster and yes extra flavor too.
    5. NOTE:My VEGAN friends can use plain water instead of milk and avoid the ghee too.
    6. NOTE:It can be served as SIZZLER....Chocolate Sauce on base....HOT halwa...on it.....and.....scoop of tender coconut ice cream on top....Heaven...just try it friends..:))))))))))))
