Gajar Halwa | Carrot Halwa Mousse is a fusion dessert made out of delicious, classic indian dessert gajar halwa/carrot halwa.

Gajar ka halwa, also known as Carrot halwa/fudge or known as Gajrela, is a very famous dessert of India.

This is my latest creation where I have made mousse from gajar halwa and served it with orange reduction garnished it with pistachios.

 

How carrot halwa is prepared?

Carrot halwa is a traditional recipe of cooking  grated carrots with milk, ghee, sugar. It is generally flavoured with cardamom & saffron, and garnished with chopped dry fruits.

 

What is Mousse :

According to Wikipedia,  Mousse is French delicacy. It has a light and airy texture. A mousse can be served as savoury or sweet preparations.

 

Fusion dessert from traditional gajar halwa mousse : Pure indulgence

As winter season is bidding adiue, regular red and long carrots have almost vanished from vegetable market.

So i thought to make this delectable mousse with beautiful orange carrots and that too with a twist.

My family too relishes gajar halwa and when I served halwa this way, they all were surprised and happy to dig deep their spoons in this little beauty.

 

Gajar Halwa Mousse | Carrot Halwa Mousse, a perfect dessert for hot summers

Now whip up heavy cream till soft peaks achieved.

Place the soaked gelatin for 5 seconds in microwave on high. Make sure it is lump free. Add gelatin to whipped cream.

Mix this whipped cream -gelatin mixture into gajar halwa with light hands.

Now fill this mixture in the modak mould or whichever shape you like, and refrigerate it for  few hours in the fridge.

For Orange reduction :

Extract fresh orange juice and transfer it in a pan to boil and thicken. Add 2 tsp icing sugar to it

Switch off the flame when orange juice turns slightly thicker. Cool it and fill it in a bottle. Orange juice reduction is ready.

Make a desired shape with a orange juice reduction on a white plate.
