Microwave Gajar Halwa | Easy GF desserts

Come Winter and we make copious quantities of Gajar Halwa and Doodhi Halwa, and so many many varieties too 🙂 


I usually make it on the stove top, but this is a quick microwave version I learnt from a cousin-in-law. The only effort is to watch over the Halwa to ensure its not burnt with frequent stirring. 

3 ingredients and Gluten Free dish for your party or late night cravings. Do let me know how you like it.

Prep time : 15 mins, Cook time : 15 mins , Serves : 3


Grated Delhi Carrots (red variety) – 2 cups (packed)  {1 cup = 200ml}

Condensed milk – 1/3 cup (can vary according to preference, we like this mildly sweet as the carrots by themselves) 

Ghee/ clarified butter – 4 TBSP

Chopped Toasted nuts – for topping (totally optional)


How to:

In a micro-proof bowl, add half the ghee and the carrots, mix well, and let them cook for 8-9 mins on low till the carrots are soft. 

Add the condensed milk, mix well and 1 TBSP of ghee and microwave for 6-8 mins in spurts of 2 mins (mixing it every time), till its totally soft and cooked.

Once done add the remaining ghee and serve warm topped with nuts (if using)
