One more fusion dish with gajar ka halva.187


1 cup Gajar ka Halwa
1/2 cup  thick sugar syrup with juice of half a lemon
Dough made with:
2 cups All purpose flour
5 tbsp refined oil
Pinch of salt
Water to knead the dough (I used about 3/4th cup of water)


  1. Pre heat oven at 150 degrees.
  2. Grease a 7″ square tin.188
  3. Divide the dough into 10 tiny balls. Roll out each ball of dough as thin as you can using dry flour to stop it from sticking.
  4. The rolled out dough should be big enough to fit in the tin.189
  5. Don’t worry if a few of them tear, they will not be visible.
  6. Now start lining the tin with the rolled out dough alternating with melted butter or ghee.190
  7. After five layers, spread the Gajar ka Halwa.
  8. Again repeat, 5 more layers. Smother the top with butter.191
  9. With a sharp knife, cut into bite sized squares.
  10. Bake for 45 minutes or till you get a crusty, golden top. Use this time to make the syrup.
  11. Remove from oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.
  12. Pour the syrup and keep it aside for about 30 minutes or more.192
  13. Sprinkle some slivered pistachios on top.193
