Carrot cakes and zucchini bread may come and go, but a well-prepared bowl of gajar ka halwa has the ability to trump all fancy dessert options out there. We’ve seen our mothers standing at the stove and stirring away at the milk and khoya for hours until it breaks down all that grated gajar, and serve us steaming portions of some sweet heaven.

Try we may to cook it the way they’ve always done, but we know it won’t even come close, so we have something easier for you: Prepare your gajar ka halwa in the Samsung Smart Oven, which will cut your cooking time dramatically; the next time you crave the halwa you can enjoy a delish, home-cooked version in less than 30 minutes.

Sounds good? Here’s how you can do it.

Ingredients

Method
In a microwave safe bowl, add the ghee and grated carrots and microwave on high power for two and a half minutes.

Take the bowl out, add milk, sugar, khoya, cream, and cardamom powder and then microwave the mix for eight to nine minutes on high power.

Allow the mix to stand for five minutes.

Garnish the gajar ka halwa with slices of almond, pista, and cashew nuts.
