Carrot halwa blondie bars recipe

     I had got some beautiful red carrots which are quite popular in delhi to make some gajar ka halwa. I was suddenly reminded of this blondies which I had loved at the first sight and had bookmarked it. I got enough time to prepare during the long weekend. They were so good and it had the taste of carrot halwa. My hubby said this was one of the best cakes I have made. I am glad I finally tried this one and am sure to make this again!!

1. Use evaporated milk instead of whole milk.
2. You can also add nutmeg powder if you wish. I am not too fond of it, so did not add.

Hi Sowmya,
I am curious... can this be made without condensed milk? im a little worried about the calorie value of this. Otherwise such a wonderful recipe. Maybe milk and more sugar?

sowmya(creative saga) said...

@shalini- I think you can... try with evaporated milk and sugar...
