I wanted to try this easy carrot halwa long before and post it as my 1000th post but somehow it didn't happen since that time this red carrot/Delhi carrot was not in season. I particularly was to try halwa using red carrot only. As now these carrots are in season and mainly the vendor where I buy my veggies had this carrot with no second thought I bought it to make this dessert.

This halwa is so simple to make and taste delicious.For a change I tasted some of the halwa with a scoop of ice cream which was totally delectable, do give a try for a change.
