Gajar Ka Halwa in Microwave

Gajar Ka Halwa in Microwave

I felt Gajar Ka Halwa in Microwave is much easier as it avoids stirring. It has always been a great hit! My guests always enjoyed them.

We had our Japanese friends and a friend from Turkey who was here for the lunch last weekend. Our Turkey friend was surprised to know that halwa could be made out of carrot. According to him they have this dessert halwa in their country like badam halwa, wheat halwa.. but not carrot halwa.


1/2-cup milk

200ml.-Sweetened Condensed Milk

Sugar as per taste (as the condensed milk is sweetened)

2-3 tbspn.-Ghee/Clarified butter

25 gms- Almond coarsely powdered (Roasted almonds in microwave for 2min and powdered)

1/4 tsp.-Saffron strings

1/2 tsp.Freshly crushed cardamom powder

Raisins and cashew nut for garnishing


1. Take a deep bottomed microwaveable vessel-mix carrot and milk and microwave on high for 15 minutes. Stand for few minutes.

2. Remove and stir, mix condensed milk and microwave for 15 minutes. Stand for few minutes.
3. Remove and stir, add sugar,add ghee, cardamom powder and almond powder and microwave for 6-8 minutes.

4. Garnish with saffron, raisins and cashew nuts fried in ghee

Serve hot or chilled.
