Indulge in the wholesome goodness of Wheat Carrot Halwa – a nutritious twist on the classic Indian dessert bursting with sweet and aromatic flavors.


  • Wheat flour – ½ cup

  • Carrot – 2 (Medium size)

  • Sugar – ¾ cup

  • Ghee – 3 to 4 tablespoons

  • Cardamom Powder – ¼ teaspoon

  • Cashew Nuts – few


  • Start by washing and peeling a carrot. Cut it into medium-sized pieces and cook until soft. Once cooked, blend these pieces into a fine puree.
  • Heat ghee in a thick-bottomed kadai and add wheat flour. Fry on medium flame until you notice a pleasant aroma. Add the carrot puree to the kadai and stir well to combine.
  • Gradually add sugar while stirring continuously. Continue to stir the mixture until it thickens and blends well. If the mixture starts to stick, add an extra one or two teaspoons of ghee to help the halwa release from the kadai easily.
  • Once the halwa has thickened and is pulling away from the sides of the kadai, sprinkle in cardamom powder and mix thoroughly for a burst of flavor.
  • Transfer the halwa to a greased plate or bowl and smooth the surface. Garnish with chopped cashew nuts for added texture and flavor.
  • If you prefer a sweeter halwa, feel free to increase the sugar quantity to one cup, according to your taste.
