GAJAR HALWA SPRING ROLLS SERVED WITH RABDI
I was craving for some classic indian dessert, so the first thought came to my mind, was Carrot Halwa, but Not the regular one, but with a twist 😜
Gajar Halwa (Carrot Halwa), an epitome of finest Indian sweets, is a delicious dessert prepared from carrots and milk.
This popularly known halwa makes its presence in most special occasions like festivals, celebrations and parties. It is one of the classic Indian sweets that would not fail to impress anyone.
I very well remember once I saw this recipe on TV made by Chef Ajay Chopra, and it was on my mind to give it a try. So, remembering that, I have given this halwa a twist, and made spring rolls out of it. Serve this with Rabdi or scoop of an ice cream, and you bet, everyone would ask for 2nd helping.
