We have made this recipe with the orange carrots.Traditional red carrots are not available outside India.Hence getting reddish color is a challenge.However,adding some beetroot did the trick.We could finally make the halva as it should.Beets added to iron content as well.Win-Win!
There are many ways of making this pudding.You can make Gajar ka halwa with khoya /mawa.You can also make it with milkmaid or condensed milk.
However,you will need to adjust sugar accordingly.Therefore it may go up in calories too.
