To celebrate this big news, Kuch meetha to banta hai, So I made "Gajar Halwa". Easy and quick dessert for kids and young generation too. 


It is so simple to make and taste delectable. It is of the right consistency, not too sweet and just perfect on its own.

I have attached very beautiful childhood memories with halwa....


Every winter, my grandfather(we called it pitaji) made this gajar ka halwa for us and he usually prepared in stove only (haath sekna or feel the aroma of halwa)

When he prepared this, we all cousins sat around it and waiting for the moment when gajar halwa is ready and pitaji give 1-1 spoon to everyone for tasting :D I miss those days and my dadu and dadi :'( Some memories never fade.
 
Today, it's our Foodie Monday Bloghop challenge theme and it's such a fun theme this time. "FestivalofColors", means you need to pick any color and according to it prepared any sweet or savory snacks for festival special "Holi".


                            Dear Friends, May this festivity
                   Of holi bring into Your life, vibrant colors
                                     Of happiness....

                              Happy Holi in Advance
