In all most, 5 out of ten Hindi movies the name of this sweet...delicious..famous sweet dish is mentioned...:D Traditional,halwa required lots of ghee,khoya,sugar and time too...I love that version too,but just to save some of my time and calorie,I made this one,as I wanted to eat this sweet,bcoz you know friends,in India,winter season & Gajar Ka Halwa go hand in hand:))))))
