  1. Carrot Halwa is one of my favorite dish in sweets. All special occasion my mom makes this dish for me. I would like to suggest on recipe which is same as carrot halwa but with a slight change in the recipe. Carrot Laddu. It has the same ingredients and cooking carrot laddu is also same. One difference here is we use dessicated coconut in the carrot halwa mixture when the carrot is half cooked. After the halwa has been prepared start making the balls and roll it over the dessicated coconut and nuts. Thank You.
