Last year I made this instant halwa courtesy my aunt Taramoushy.I got mixed reactions for it.Though some felt the instant method was very convenient compared to hours and hours of stirring and mixing,some felt that it was worth the effort to have “that” taste for the halwa.Honestly,I can give “that” taste a miss;).By the end of grating mounds of carrot,I am tired as hell and even the thought of stirring the big batch till it cooks gives me the creeps.
I came across this super simple recipe for GkH in Tarla Dalal’s cookbook.It requires only a teeny bit of ghee and a teenier bit of sugar.Since the word d-i-e-t is always there at the back of mind,I though of trying this one out as a diet halwa,almost.
