Recipe: Gajar ka Halwa... with a twist

October 20, 2014 15:45 IST

Rediff reader Amarendra Mulye from Mumbai shares this interesting 'Gulab Halwa' recipe with us.

Gulab Halwa is the traditional Gajar ka Halwa served with a twist, says Amarendra Mulye who calls himself an 'experimental cook'.

This is how he discovered the recipe for 'Gulab Halwa':

Once, while I was making Gajar ka Halwa, I found some rose petals in my refrigerator.

To give a twist, I caramelised it and added it to the halwa along with rose water and essence.

And to my surprise, it tasted good.

The next time, I added Beetroot to it to enhance the colour and this recipe was born.

Here's the recipe:

Gulab Halwa

Cooking time: 45 minutes

Serves 6


For garnishing


Expert tip: In absence of gulkand, you may add rose essence or rose water to the halwa. You may also caramalise edible rose petals and add it to the Halwa before serving.
