Carrot Halwa in Pressure cooker

Carrot halwa is a traditional Indian sweet or pudding made with Delhi carrots, milk and sugar.  It is also called as Gajrela. Traditionally it is made by simmering freshly grated carrot in full fat milk. But here I didn’t grate the carrot, instead I chopped it into big chunks and used pressure cooker method to make this carrot halwa. It is less time consuming but there is no compromise in the taste. So do try this recipe at home and surprise your loved ones.
