Gajar Ka Halwa Recipe

Now this is the most common sweet dish loved by most Indians. So hubby thought to make this himself on V day and I was more than happy to relish it. I did grate all the carrots needed for the recipe. Those who are following me in Instagram may have seen my pic about it on that day, but I am really sorry about the delay in post. I was kind of caught up on other stuff and the recipe category skipped my mind. So here it is, won’t do any more jibber jabber :-)
