Baked Carrot Halwa/Gajar Ka Halwa

Carrot Halwa/Gajar Ka Halwa is an Indian pudding that is made with carrot, milk, khoya and sugar. I have always made the halwa the traditional way, where the carrots are grated and cooked on the stove top on low flame with milk. Halwa that is slow cooked tastes so yummy. We are a family with sweet tooth and many times we crave to eat dessert but don’t have time to make our favorites like this halwa. Baking the halwa was what popped up to my mind, after making the baked version of lauki halwa. The process to bake carrot halwa was same as lauki halwa except that there were some changes to the ingredients. The baked version of the carrot halwa with ricotta cheese turned out exactly the way we like it. An absolute easy way to make the delicious dessert while other dishes are being whipped up. Festival season is approaching so its the perfect dessert recipe to make when having to cook a storm πŸ™‚
