.
💖(Hindi: गाजर का हलवा), also known as gajorer halua, #Gajrela, #GajarPak, and Carrot #Halwa is a classic carrot-based sweet dessert pudding from the #Indian subcontinent.
This sweet, buttery dessert is a near-universal treat during #Diwali – It is traditionally made by placing grated #carrots in a pot containing a specific amount of water, milk, ghee and sugar and then cooking while stirring regularly. Try this #Vegan spin on the traditional favourite.
.
💘Some use finely grated carrot, while others prefer a chunkier texture, although this will make the halwa take slightly longer to cook, so go for the finely grated if you are in a hurry.
Constant stirring and varying the temperature during frying both help to speed up the process of cooking off the carrot juice.
.
💘Sugar Options: White sugar seems to be the standard choice (caster will dissolve fastest), but some use jaggery, or unrefined palm sugar: it strikes me that its treacly notes would work well with the caramelised flavours in the pudding. Soft brown sugar would also make a decent substitute. Feel free to use either – or, indeed, white sugar, if you are after a simpler, more vibrantly coloured halwa.
.
💘The fruit, nuts and spices: try adding juicy raisins or crushed cashews into the cooked mix for a spin on flavour and texture.
.
💘NUTRITION: #Carrots are LOADED with #Vitamin A (eyes). Also, it is a very good source of Fiber, Vitamins C and K.
