A dairyfree version of the classic Indian dessert, Gajar Halwa or Carrot Halwa, made with almond milk.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
  • 1 pound carrots, finely grated
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 8 cardamom pods
  • 3-5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • A handful of cashews and raisins
  1. Put the carrots, cardamom pods and almond milk into a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until all the liquid has evaporated. This took me about 45-50 minutes.
  2. In another saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. Add the carrots and fry, stirring, until the carrots turn a rich red. This will take around 15-20 minutes.
  3. Now add the sugar and stir until it's well mixed. Add the cashews and raisins and cook, stirring for a couple of minutes.
  4. Take off the heat. The halwa can be eaten warm or at room temperature or even cold. Any which way, it's quite delicious.
  5. Enjoy!
