Sugar Free Gajar Ka Halwa ( Healthy Carrot Pudding)

Cooking ' Gajar ka halwa' itself is a nice experience. I remember how we used to hang around in the kitchen when Mom used to cook it. The typical smell of cardamom along with a faint smell of carrots cooking together was enough for us to feel hungry. Now when I cook it in my kitchen my kids also show the same enthusiasm. Of couse cooking Gajar ka Halwa is no big deal but here I am sharing how to make it healthier. Ofcourse the taste will not be as same as you cook the traditional way....with Mawa and lot of ghee but my version is definetly healthy and delicious.
