I have already shared recipes on how to make Carrot halwa by slow cooking in an open pan and with condensed milk in a pressure cooker. And today I am going to share a recipe of carrot halwa with khova. I have used pressure cooker again as it speeds up the cooking process. For more sweet recipes, please check out the sweet recipes page.

Serves: 4

4 tbsp ghee
6 carrots, skin peeled and grated
2 cups milk
100 gms khova (mildly sweetened)
3/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
pinch of cardamom powder
5 to 6 tbsp chopped dry fruits (cashews, pistachios, almonds)


  • Melt ghee in a pressure cooker, add 3/4th quantity of dry fruits and saute till they turn golden. 
  • Add grated carrots along with milk and mix well.
  • Close the lid of the pressure cooker and pressure cook for 1 whistle and switch off the gas.
  • When the pressure has released, open the lid of the cooker and switch On the gas.
  • Add sugar and crumbled khova now and continue cooking for about 5 minutes..
  • By this time, most of the liquid would have evaporated..
  • Now add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • After a couple of minutes, switch off the stove.
  • Transfer to serving bowls an garnish with the remaining chopped nuts on top.
  • Serve warm or refrigerate for a few hours and serve cold.
  • Carrot halwa stays fresh when refrigerated for up to 1 week.
