ಗಜ್ಜರಿಯ ಹಲ್ವ ~ Carrot Halwa (without milk)

 Carrot Halwa (Without Milk)/ ಗಜ್ಜರಿಯ ಹಲ್ವ/गाजर का हल्वा

This recipe of carrot halwa does not include adding of milk, so this needs little more ghee than in the procedure where milk is added to make halwa.


Grated Carrot - 4 cups
Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
Cardamom  - 1- 2 (depends on ones taste)
Ghee - 3 - 4 tsp
Dry fruits - your choice


Wash the carrots thoroughly, scrape the outer layer to remove dirt, which would stay after washing too. 

Now grate the carrots.

Take a kadai or thick bottomed vessel.
Add 2 tsp of ghee, keep on medium flame, add grated carrots to it.
Now start stirring it until the moisture of the grated carrot gets evaporated completely, another tsp of ghee can be added here, cook it until raw smell goes off, when all the moisture gets evaporated, there will be change in color too, it can be noticed that it gives nice aroma, once its done, carrot looks in diff texture.

Now add sugar to the carrot, add cardamom powder, stir until the sugar melts & is completely absorbed by the carrot.

The whole process must be done on medium flame & continuous stirring should be done to avoid carrot sticking out to the bottom of the vessel. Fry dry fruits in another pan add them to the carrot halwa.
