Microwave Gajar Ka Halwa / Carrot Halwa

Standing in front of the open flame is kind of painful and really agonizing in these summer months. So if you are craving some sweets...it’s better not to give in to those urges, cause they will eventually lead to a long...long long long.... one or two hours which are not only painful from the heat but also from stirring the milk on a continuous basis. So long story short...making sweets or desserts, during summer is not an easy task to deal with...unless of course someone else is making that for you and you are solely slated to indulge!!

So, I made carrot halwa...less out of the sweet tooth and more out of necessity, because I had to use up the carrots that I bought ages ago, before they start to rot. I didn’t have any khoya so made that from powdered milk as well, and suddenly making gajar ka halwa didn’t seem that tough anymore.
