Holiday season is indeed incomplete without sweet delicacies. Since the festive mood is already on and holidays are not distant either, get ready to prepare some sweets at home.

Carrots halwa or gajar ka halwa is the most awaited Indian sweet dish in winters. I prepare this dish often in colder months to satiate the sweet teeth of my family and mine too! Here I have shared my
recipe with you.
