  • 50 th fan, we will make something that is synonymous with celebrations in India. Did I hear a loud and collective “Gajar Halwa”? Yes, absolutely right! We shall celebrate with the gajar halwa, a desert so rooted in Indian culture that Indian women can almost make it blindfolded. Its cousin the Doodhi (bottle gourd) halva also has an equally good reputation but it’s the gajar halwa that calls the shots nevertheless. The test for a good gajar halwa is simple. It should melt the minute you put it in your mouth.
  • 1 Kg Carrots
  • 5-6 tablespoons ghee
  • 60 grams roughly chopped mixed dry fruits (I used cashews, raisins, pistachios and almonds)
  • 250 ml condensed milk
  • 600 ml good quality milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (you could use whole sugar if you like)
  • ½ spoon green cardamom powder
