How To Make Gajar Ka Halwa
Gajar Halawa is delicious, rich dessert prepared from carrot and milk. Traditionally, making Carrot Halwa with slow cooking method is time consuming, almost take a more than an hour. other methods are cook carrot in pressure cooker or cook with condensed milk.
I have tried the traditional way to cook gajar halwa completely in a milk and malai (fresh cream). Along with this milk and malai, ghee and cardamom powder gives nice aroma and rich texture to this Gajar Ka Halwa. This is traditional recipe require time and patience. Khoya is not required for this recipe. Just mix grated carrot, milk and ghee. Slow cook on low to medium flame and mix it in between. A heavy bottom kadhai or not stick kadhai are useful to make halwa or else it will burn the Halwa.
So, do you remember any urban Punjabi wedding that you attended in the past one decade or so, which didn’t have a cakes? Well, to be honest, I can’t. The face of the Indian weddings has totally changed in the past decade. Cakes have become and integral part of marriage parties, Punjabi weddings more so. And well, what we have today is a host of cake delivery specialists who make cakes that are not only totally English in taste, but also an absolute delight for the Indian eyes.
While Punjabis are known go way above than overboard while spending on weddings, we also admit that these events are also the ones we love to attend. With demonetisation beating drums over our heads, there may have been some changes in the wedding patterns, but cakes have not disappeared still, and are considered an indispensable part of a wedding gourmet, décor and the itinerary.
