Carrot Halwa

Carrot Halwa
Carrot Halwa
Ingredients (for 2 people):
  1. Carrot – 250 grams
  2. Ball Jaggery or jaggery powder – 75 grams
  3. Water – 50 ml
  4. Cashewnuts – 25 grams
  5. Cardamom powder – 1/4 teaspoon

  1. Clean the carrot and steam using Idli pot. It takes 15 to 20 minutes for Carrot to become soft. Turn-off the stove and let the carrot cool down. Then grate the Carrots using big or small size grater. Keep this aside.
  2. Dry roast a few cashewnuts for garnishing and keep it aside. Crush the remaining Cashews and make a coarse powder and keep it aside.
  3. Take water in a bowl and heat it up. Put ball jaggery pieces or jaggery powder and boil it. The jaggery will melt completely. If you feel there are any impurities in jaggery, filter the syrup at this stage and then place it on stove again and continue boiling. 
  4. When the syrup starts thickening, add the grated Carrot and keep stirring. In 10 minutes, this mixture will form a lump consistency. Now add the Cashewnut powder and stir well for few more minutes.  All the ingredients will be mixed up thoroughly and form a halwa consistency. Turn-off the stove now.
  5. Mix Cardamom powder and roasted Cashewnuts. Halwa is ready now. Eat it hot or warm.
  • While I was browsing the youtube videos for Vegan Carrot Halwa, I came across this recipe and found it useful. I have modified the method slightly, and made two versions i.e. Raw Carrot Halwa and Cooked one which is explained here. Both versions came out well.
  • The measurement of sweetner given here is only as approximate quantity. You may adjust the taste as per your choice. You may also use Palm crystal powder instead of Jaggery powder.
