Gajar ka Halwa (Carrot Pudding) is truly a soul satisfying & wholesome dessert. Best way to satisfy your sweet tooth is with mouthwatering gajrela. Honestly, it tastes as good as it looks. It is not only the easiest but also an amazing way to celebrate and make life sweeter. An extraordinary dessert which takes me to trance every time I eat was traditionally made using carrots, ghee and milk but lately many more ingredients are being to give more flavor and taste. Especially in the winter wonderland it feels so blissful with just a handful of ingredients.
