Gajar Halwa (Indian Sweet Carrot Pudding)

{{totalReview}}
A winter specialty, Gajar Halwa is a decadent carrot pudding which is a must-have for every Indian wedding. It is flavored with cardamom, and enriched with a generous amount of nuts. One of the reasons why Gajar Halwa is so famous all over India is its rich mouthfeel brought about by the heavily-reduced milk.
