Carrot Coconut Milk Halwa

Carrot Coconut Milk Halwa

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my Readers!

Carrot Coconut Milk Halwa is a sinful dessert made with grated carrots and cooked in coconut milk.

The silky, nutty carrot halwa gets a makeover when cooked in coconut milk and is so delicious. Since I have so many versions of Carrot halwa on the blog, this version caught my attention and I decided I would surely give it a try.

Everybody loved it and will surely be repeated when I have excess coconut milk on hand.

If you are wondering why I am talking about this halwa, well we are starting our September Mega Blogging Marathon, where we will be blogging nonstop through the month, taking off on Sundays.

The theme for the BM#104 is Sweets and Snacks. It is further split into 4 weeks, each week with a theme. I wasn’t planning to do it in this space, however, once I decided, I was very clear I will be doing Halwas. I had a goal of creating 101 Halwa.

So under Sweets this week, you will get to read different halwas. My initial list had all halwas with whole grain flours some different combinations. I happened to start with this halwa as it was the easiest recipe and ended up sharing it first.

I have different versions and cooking methods in making the quintessential Gajjar Ka Halwa, then a Quick Gajar Halwa made in Pressure Cooker, Another version of Carrot Halwa that happened during A First Love. Carrot Moong Dal Halwa, Microwave Carrot Halwa
