Happy Diwali every one!!!!

Carrot or Gajur ka halwa is a very popular Indian sweet.Another combination is Gajur ladoo,its very simple, blend and coated with shredded coconut.It can be prepared in 15 mins with simple ingredients at home.Its a big hit in my home and i'm sure the same will happen in your home as well.So for Diwali or any other celebrations we need sweet, and home made goodies are more better and most preferred.So here comes the recipe.
