Gajar ka Halwa

Gajar ka halwa is a carrot-based sweet dessert pudding from the Indian subcontinent, also known as gajorer halua, gajrela, gajar pak, and carrot halwa. It's made by putting grated carrots in a pot with a particular amount of water, milk, sugar, and cardamom, then cooking it while constantly stirring. It's always garnished with almonds and pistachios. Ghee, a form of clarified butter from the Indian subcontinent, is used to sauté the nuts and other ingredients.

The dessert is traditionally consumed during all Indian festivals, especially Diwali, Holi, Eid al-Fitr, and Raksha Bandhan. During the winter, it is served hot.
