My Grandmother used to make it in butter but I add both aliz olive oil and butter due to calories. lots of websites also come up with Gajar ka Halwa Recipe in Urdu but make the one that you find different like our recipe.
Use fresh milk that is pure as well. you should use sugar according to your taste. The main process is to fry all ingredients at low heat without over drying.
You will notice that the gajar ka halwa recipe at wedding events is different from homemade halwa recipe because it has more eggs and butter it is less dry.
Some women and hotel chefs also make it in desi ghee, so better use what suits you.
The taste of carrots, khoya, and nuts make the real halwa so make sure they are all well mixed in a well-balanced quantity. Serve it with lunch, dinner or tea, or have it in breakfast.
