How to make Carrot halwa/pudding/gajar ka halwa — with condensed milk– Indian sweets and dessert recipe

        Carrot halwa was one of the very first desserts I had learned to make from my mom. Her recipe was slightly different. I have made so many times by now that I have learned to perfect the recipe each time I make.I once made a huge quantity for a friends party and everyone loved it.  Its a dessert with which you can impress your guests and its actually very easy to make as well. Its a little time consuming especially when it comes to grating the carrots, but its worth the time.
