Gajar Halwa Recipe taken from Mrs. Swapna Dutta, Sawan’s mom

There’s red red carrots in the market
They’re headed for my kitchen you can bet
From the red red carrots I’m going to get
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh

(Ingredients : Carrots – 4/5 or half kilo, khoya (solidified milk) 100 – 125gms, sugar 1/2 cup or to taste, dry fruits ( cashew, raisins ), ghee – 2 tbsp, cardamom pods 4)

Grate all your carrots, heat up the ghee
Saute the cardamom, the dry fruits very gently
Add all the carrots, stir for some time (15-20min/ till carrots are tender)
Now add the khoya ( stir for a min ), and the sugar, it smells sublime!

Stir till its thick and creamy as sin,
Go on, take a spoonful, dig right in!
Whichever part of the world you live in,
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh

That’s how my mom makes it for me
When I visit her in winter randomly
She knows just how I like it you see,
Gajar Halwa oh oh oh oh
Gajar Halwa!!!

  1. Wow, such a nice foot tapping no … Certainly goes well after a generous &!$%!$l# of Gajar ka Halwa
    Hebby Laglo madam

    • Sawan Dutta / THE METRONOME Mam, looking forward to a longer version , may be like “The song I didn’t know how to sing” / Kill it with a clarinet (my favourite)

  2. w!%y#* first like from my end, and yes this recipe also brings water in my ##%** like always. btw, can you make a song on Luchi and Alur dom?

    • thank you to the power of 21 ( i’m now wondering which five you didn’t like and why ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and sure, let me add that to my list of suggestions

  3. Euphoniously %*!?#@#@$! $%%$%@*!! Wholesome Nutritive And Nutritious :: GAJAR KA HALWA
    Good Job Sawan
    No Matter What Diet You Are On, You Cannot Resist Some Steaming Hot GAJAR KA HALWA In Winters.
    At The Same Time, It Tastes Delicious Even When It Is Served Cold.
    Sprinkled Dry Fruits Make It Look More Appetizing And Add To Its Nutritious Value.
    Not Everything Has To Be Calorie Free, And GAJAR KA HALWA Is One Such Thing.
    Carrots Are Loaded With Vitamin A (Eyes). Also, It Is A Very Good Source Of Fiber, Vitamins C And K. Milk Adds Some Calcium And Protein To This Dish. Cashews Add A Good Amount Of Protein To This Dish As Well. Raisins Are Known To Be An Antioxidant Rich Fruit.
    Keep Posting
    All the Best

    • wow thank you so very much for all the invaluable nutrition information – makes one feel so much less guilty about the occasional indulgence – and yes i can’t resist my mom’s gajar halwa usually, i pig out greedily ๐Ÿ™‚ take care and thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I can imagine !$!%# all my love for gajar ka halwa comes from… my mom makes it the same way! I guess its the bong way! Love the rendition… makes me wanna own up to more musical dishes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. ๐Ÿ˜Š good to see you again.
    I prepare gajar halwa frequently for my kids. One suggestion, if you allow me, we can use barfi/milkcake/sandesh if khoya is not available.
    Thanks. See you soon ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    • Anamika Choudhury you know, truth be told, my mom does that too quite often – use milk pedas etc etc, crumbled ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thank you – that IS. great tip!

  6. Wat? Food p**n? Ei ki dekhale? Hypnotizing or seducing with gajar halwa. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    • Sanghamitra Ghosh thank you so much – I think the tips were needed because I had many friends outside india complain about the unavailability of khoya….

    • RUPA BANERJEE thank you ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

    • +Mousumi Chakrabarti Thanks a million for your VERY constructive feedback on Patishapta about this – I specifically kept your comment in mind for this one. I usually have no patience with random negative remarks &?$ constructive critiques like yours are absolute invaluable!

    • Be Humble ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I know this one was really short but then it’s a really simple recipe – ( and it was a very rushed shoot because the tree turned red without much warning and the leaves fall off within two days of looking like this, so I had almost no time to really plan this one if I was to capture the red leaves outside ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  7. Hey long time. I also got my carrot from the market today to make Gajar halwa ๐Ÿ˜› btw lovely rendition

  8. this one is so peppy, loved the rhythm.. my maa makes Gajorer Paayesh more often than halwa, and that tastes awesome too.. sharing it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Sawan Dutta / THE METRONOME It’s a popular dish I think, you will get the recipe even on YouTube as gajorer payesh or carrot milk pudding..
      and yeah, am all good and healthy now ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Sawan Dutta / THE METRONOME My aunt gifted me a kitten last year on my bday, and guess what, my father has also adopted a German Shepherd puppy last month.. so, am beyond happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ?&@$* Maksud !#?! good question ๐Ÿ˜ƒ many different reasons. I’m assuming yo know what a Metronome is? So the very first song I uploaded online long ago was sung just to a Metronome track, so I decided to use that sound, and that theme for my song Blog. Because a Metronome is such an important part of every musician and audio professional’s life and work. And because a Metronome is what holds a recording and a track together, structurally. Because a Metronome is something you can depend upon, to stay regular and constant. So therefore โ˜บ๏ธ

    • Sawan Dutta / THE METRONOME . I never knew about Metronome. Your channel name made me search Metronome on the web. And I also had this question, do musicians use metronome at present times. You answered that question as well ๐Ÿ™‚
      Mmm do we have that song still in the YouTube?

  9. Totally loved it.. especially the introduction on your inspiration๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜love your phrasing๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ€โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

  10. We always wait for your videos… my humble request.. Kindly upload more videos… more frequently…..

    • brajendra kumar hahahaha thank you โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
