Carrot Sweet Pudding (Gajar Halwa) - Vegetarian

Ah, the cuisine of India! And the aroma of its spices! It made the Europeans salivate and their daring explorers risk their lives to find a sea route to India! That remarkable cuisine is now yours to create and enjoy through this class. 

Carrot Sweet Pudding or Gajar Halwa (Gajar=carrot, halwa= pudding) is a delicious Indian dessert. Although it is not certain where it originated, Gajar Halwa is strongly associated with Punjab, a state in northern India. This dessert is prepared during festivals and special occasions. The combination of carrots, milk, sugar, and a hint of cardamom makes it a mouthwatering and popular dessert among the young and old. Gajar Halwa is typically served warm.
