Gajar ka Halwa in Pressure Cooker. A very simple and quick to make carrot halwa which is made in pressure cooker to save the time that it takes to cook the carrots. With this method it is a breeze to make this yummy and traditional dessert in a jiffy.
With winter here and the red carrots here, I can’t simply avoid posting different variations of the gajar ka halwa recipe on my blog. A very simple and easy carrot halwa recipe made in a jiffy in a pressure cooker. If you have already seen my traditional gajar ka halwa recipe, you will notice that this recipe is also pretty similar to it but the only difference is that here, I am cooking it in a pressure cooker rather than simmering it for a long time. I have used the same ingredients including the khoya or the mawa. For me, gajar ka halwa tastes best only with the mawa / khoya. I make it as much as possible only with it.
Gajar ka halwa is one of my very favorite Indian sweets. I can simply never have enough of it. And Alhamdulillah, so does all of my family. It is one of the desserts which all 5 of us enjoy very much and I do not have to worry what if one isn’t gonna like it. So Alhamdulillah for that.
I have made this gajar ka halwa in a pressure cooker with the red juicy carrots. It is important to buy tender and juicy carrots as they are easy to grate and taste awesome too. I always use the food processor for grating the carrots as I cannot imagine doing it manually. My poor hands won’t be able to take that much!!
Let us get started with the gajar ka halwa in a pressure cooker
Gajar Ka Halwa in a Pressure Cooker
- 1 kg carrot
- 1 cup milk
- 4 tbsp ghee
- 500 gm khoya / mawa
- 250 gm sugar
- 30-35 almond peeled and sliced
- 4-5 green cardamom
- Peel and grate the carrots.
- In a pressure cooker, throw in the grated carrots, green cardamom and milk and cook till one whistle. Wait for the steam to escape and open the lid. Cook on high heat till the milk dries up. Stir often to avoid the bottom from getting burnt.
- Add the ghee and fry well till it starts leaving the sides of the carrot mixture.
- Now throw in the sugar and cook till all the sugar has melt.
- Finally add the khoya / mawa and give it a good stir till all the lumps have disappeared from the khoya and the carrot halwa has attained your desired consistency.
- Serve warm or cold garnished with almond slivers.
