Mum’s little treat to us!


It is actually Mum who treated us this week with this very nice carrot halva. Yesterday she took a day off work and spent the whole day cooking some nice goodies! So nice to come back home and find this warm yummy carrot halva. She even veganised it (mum is not vegan, by the way. Yes sometimes it gets a bit wild to be vegan in an omni household!) and made it with a slight twist by adding some mashed rice to it. So, this is more like a carrot-rice halva.
Carrot halva is traditionally an Indian dish made with cream/milk and ghee. She used coconut milk and vegan margarine instead. Today again, I’m having this for dessert as I’m typing now!


  1. I've always wanted to make a Carrot Halva - well not always - but ever since I started getting into Indian food :)

  2. What a nice idea to add rice! looks delish!

  3. Maybe you won't believe me if I tell you that I have been thinking about carrot halva all week? I heard it mentioned somewhere and it totally stuck to my mind! Ha ha and now it's even on your blog :D

  4. mihl, it's a sign you should make some! :)

  5. Hi, there! I just wanted to leave a comment since it is my first time visiting your blog. I found it through Mihl's blog and I love it!

  6. I have nominated you for a Brillante Weblog award - I really enjoy your blog and think your dishes are all awesome. Check out the details at my blog when you have a chance :)

  7. Carrot halva looks lovely - I am a great fan of the other halva - the one based on sesame seeds - but this looks great too!

  8. Great blog!

    So many wonderful vegan recipes. Thanks for sharing so many recipes!
