Gajrela is a popular Punjabi dessert which is also called as Ghajar ka Halwa. It is a rich Indian dessert made with fresh carrots, milk, butter, sugar and nuts.  When I visited my sister’s place once, my brother in law made this sweet and it was mouthwatering. From then on, I wished to make this at home but I didnot. Again I had an idea of making when ‘Krish’ asked me to make this for him . It made me to prepare this delicious dessert at home. Sssshhhhh!!!!!  I am going to surprise him with gajrela.



Grated Carrot – 1 cup

Milk – 1 cup

Sugar – 1/4 cup

Butter – 1 tbsp

Cashew – To garnish

  • In a pan add butter and fry the cashews.
  • Add the grated carrot and sugar into the pan.
  • Saute it for five minutes. This allows the carrot and sugar to get blend with each other.
  • Add milk into the pan and stir continuously.
  • The mixture will thickens and will start leaving the sides.
  • Transfer it to a bowl and serve either chilled or hot.
