Gajar ka Halwa

A sweet vendor in old delhi selling Gajar ka Halwa and Gulab Jamun. The art of making halwa with nuts was introduced in India during the Moghul period by the traders from the Middle East and Asia. It is the Indian cooks, however, who are credited with making halwa by using vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, zucchini, snake squash, winter melon, potatoes, and yams. This glazed carrot halwa, a specialty of the Sikhs of Punjab, is the most popular halwa in India and is enjoyed as a dessert as well as a sweet.
