Staying in coastal, I didn’t get proper Gajar to make Gajar ka halwa. So this Diwali I’ve planned to prepare Carrot halwa instead. When we were staying in Delhi, there was a Sudden surprise from my uncle and I didn’t know what to prepare…. Suddenly I remembered lots of Gajar in refrigerator and thought I can prepare it in cooker in a jiffy. And yes, I did it and surprised them. I got this idea of making it in a cooker from prestige cooker advertisement :-D. Come on….. It won’t take more than 20-25 min. Happy cooking!!
