Jaggery Carrot Halwa Recipe | How To Make Gud Aur Gajar Ka Halwa


I have already shared carrot halwa using sugar. But I thought to share today's healthier version where I replace sugar with jaggery. I and my daughter eat a lot of desserts, I try to make them healthier wherever possible 😊
Jaggery has many health benefits. One of them is it helps to boost immunity. Is it not the right time to replace sugar with jaggery in our daily routine?

I have used liquid jaggery / liquid molasses which we get in our native (coastal areas of Karnataka). You will get online too. But I m not sure about the quality and it's overpriced. I never ordered online. Always got it from my hometown. If you are in Bangalore, you might get it in Mangalore stores. You can use good quality powdered jaggery as well...

Let's eat healthy today 😊
