Day 248: Gajar Halwa (Carrot Pudding)

Happy Diwali! Today I made gajar halwa. It's basically a sweet, delicious carrot pudding.

This was my first time making gajar halwa. When I tried it today, it was really tasty. Sweet, and the carrots tasted amazing!

You would think that the carrots are hard and crunchy and taste like a vegetable, but because you cook them, they kind of become soft and you wouldn't think they were really the consistency of a carrot.

I like eating this when it's warm, with lots of nuts and/or golden raisins. It also tastes good with some vanilla ice cream.

This is a great Indian sweet! It's gooey and oh so good! In fact, it's super simple! It only takes 15-20 minutes.
