Notes:

  • You should always use juicy carrots.
  • You can also replace Mava (khoya) with condensed milk. If you don’t have any of them, you can add 4kg milk in 2 kg Carrots instead of 1 Kg milk as mentioned above. It will take a lot of time to cook because of extra milk but the taste of Gajrela would be exactly the same.
  • You can add any dry fruits or nuts according to your choice.
  • You should always use full-fat milk in Gajar Ka Halwa.
  • You can store Gajar Ka Halwa in the refrigerator for a week. Always serve hot (warm).
