Carrot Halwa is a simple kind of wanna-be carrot fudge. It’s like taking carrot cake and getting ride of all the cake and leaving behind a warm gooey carrot filling. In fact, carrot halwa would probably take carrot cake to an entirely different level. Come to think of it… I’ll have to make a carrot halwa cake next chance I get.
Right now I’m freezing the extras so I can make stuffed pancakes.
