  • Transfer this into the ghee greased pan and flat it using ladle or glass garnish with chopped pistachios, cool it for 10-15 minutes cut into your desired shapes.
  • Take the each piece carefully and serve it warm or chilled.

  • Food color is completely optional.
  • You can serve the carrot halwa in the bowl too instead of making pieces.
  • If you wish add ghee roasted cashews and raisins to the halwa.
