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.
