In Indian household winters are incomplete without making Gajar Ka halwa multiple times or at least 2-3 times 😀 The most comforting sign of long awaited winter is Gajar Ka Halwa. Though nothing beats “Maa ke hath ka bana Gajar Ka Halwa” but after moving to USA this privilege is no longer available. The only times I used to eat Gajar Ka Hawla..1- either cooked by my mommy or 2- cooked by my maasi 🙂 They both cook delicious Gajar Ka Halwa. So for the VERY FIRST TIME I tried making this Gajar Ka Halwa which I was very much sure I cannot make gajar ka halwa anyway because of the time and patience it requires..Well that’s difficult for me 😛
Still I tried making this for my beloved Hubby and I was VERY HAPPY when he said it’s delicious. Yeahhh…Mission Successful! 😀
