It was a real simple recipe. I tried it out for the first time and my husband really enjoyed it, though he had never had a sweet tooth. In addtion to it, you can place the carrot halwa in an ice cream cup, first place a thick layer of the carrot halwa and then top it with a sccop of Rum and Raisin Ice cream from Baskin Robbins. It tastes simply good. It gives it a real rich taste and can be served for special occasions, just to indulge yourself into something rich.
