Carrots Halwa or Gajar ka halwa in Pressure Cooker– A slow-cooked traditional Indian halwa or pudding made by simmering carrots in milk. Carrot halwa is popularly known as Gajar ka Halwa or Gajrela.However, traditionally It is made by placing grated carrots in a pot containing a specific amount of Ghee, milk, and sugar and then cooking while stirring regularly. In fact, I am sharing a quick recipe of gajar halwa with step by step photos and video. This recipe shares the traditional way of making delicious gajar ka halwa just in few minutes.

Gajar halwa is my favorite. The way we make gajar halwa traditionally is very time-consuming. These days everybody is so busy in daily jobs that eventually we compromise with readymade market stuff. We always worry about the type of ghee they are using. In fact, being parents we are always worried about our families’ health especially kids and the elderly. So this time I thought why not try some quick version of halwa.

As a result of I took the help of one of my aunt, she is a perfect cook and a working lady, and to my surprise, she told me a quick version of gajar halwa in a pressure cooker as well as in the microwave. I tried her recipe and found it perfect. In fact, there was not much difference in taste also, and very less amount of ghee and milk was consumed in it. so it is healthy too what else is required?
