Carrot Halwa - Gajrela
Carrot Halwa / Gajar ka Halwa is the favourite Indian Sweet. The Punjabi way is very delicious - cooking in milk and the addition of Khoa. This dessert is a must have for celebrations at home. So also, we made this delicacy to welcome our newest and special member into the family.
