How to make low fat carrot halwa

  1. Before we begin making the low fat carrot halwa recipe | healthy gajar ka halwa |  low fat Indian carrot pudding | clean and wash the carrots. Make use of tender, juicy, firm red carrots to get that naturally sweet gajar ka halwa. 
  2. Peel it using a scraper and discard the skin. To get 2 cups of grated carrot we have used 4 medium-sized carrots.
  3. Grate the carrots using a box grater. You can use the shredding disc on your food processor but do not grind the carrots in a blender. Keep aside.

How much is one serving of halwa ?

   Karan, one serving is an estimate of what you would eat. This is a healthy Indian sweet where ghee is healthy for you. We have used dates as a sweetener in this recipe which works for diabetics also.

Tastes similar to authentic gajar halwa with a slight sweet taste of dates... But it''s a great option to add sweetness to sweets using dates instead of refined sugar. I will follow only this recipe henceforth.
