Carrot Ginger Halwa

Carrot Ginger Halwa

Halwa is a popular Indian snack that typically contains carrots, sugar and sometimes golden raisins. It can be quite sweet, but with Amy’s Carrot Ginger Soup in this recipe, the sweetness is toned down while the texture and flavor will leave you asking for more!

Pro tip

For a creamier, more traditional version of this recipe, use sweetened condensed milk instead of condensed coconut milk. You can also use other nuts, like cashews or toasted almonds, in place of pistachios, depending on what you have on hand in your pantry.
