Carrot Halwa is an all time favourite at home. The time and effort involved in grating the carrots and the process of slow cooking is not needed here as in the traditional method. This Pressure Cooker Carrot Halwa requires very less effort and can be made very quickly in less than 30 mins. As we are only going to chop the carrots roughly, this version of carrot halwa is a breeze to make. Do check my traditional method and microwave method if you are interested. The best carrots for this halwa would be Delhi carrots. Grab some when they are available in season and make this yummy treat for your family and friends, Now that you have this quick and easy method!

Here is the video..

  1. You can fry the cashews first in the pressure and keep it aside. Now add the carrots and milk and follow the rest of the procedure to make it as a one pot dish.
  2. You can add fried raisins too.
  3. The amount of sugar was just right for us. Adjust sugar levels according to your taste and depending on how sweet the carrots you are using are.
  4. Serve this halwa warm or cold. I love both ways 🙂
