Gajar ka Halwa (Carrot Pudding) is truly a soul satisfying & wholesome dessert. Best way to satisfy your sweet tooth is with mouthwatering gajrela. Honestly, it tastes as good as it looks. It is not only the easiest but also an amazing way to celebrate and make life sweeter.

Especially in the winter wonderland it feels so blissful with just a handful of ingredients.
