  • Carrots (गाजर)  -  1 Kg
  • Milk (दूध)  -  1 ½ litre
  • Green cardamom (छोटी इलायची)  -  7-8
  • Raisins (किशमिश)  -  2 tbsp.
  • Almonds (बादाम)  -  1 tbsp.
  • Dates (खजूर)  -  2 tbsp.
  • Ghee (घी)  -  5-7 tbsp.
  • Sugar (चीनी)  -  5-7 tbsp.


  1. Wash, peel & grate carrots (गाजर). Keep aside.
  2. Soak raisins (किशमिश) in a little water, shred almonds (बादाम), chop dates (खजूर). Keep aside.
  3. Take milk (दूध), grated carrots (गाजर) and add green cardamom (छोटी इलायची) in a thick base pan. Cook simmer until liquid evaporates.
  4. In a thick base pan heat ghee (घी) and add milk (दूध) - carrots (गाजर) mixture. Cook for 10-15 minute on a medium flame. Keep stirring often, so that the milk (दूध) - carrots (गाजर) mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add sugar, mix well and further cook until the gajar ka halwa turns into deep reddish color.
  6. Remove raisins (किशमिश) water and add into gajar ka halwa with shredded almonds (बादाम) and chopped dates (खजूर). Mix well and immediately remove from flame.
  7. Garnish with some shredded almonds (बादाम) and serve hot.


• If you are in hurry use condensed milk (milkmaid) instead of milk (दूध) and if needed then only add sugar (चीनी).
