This pudding/halwa can easily satisfy your crave for sweets. This weekend I had made this dessert for my family and friends and they loved this low calorie gluten free dessert. This dessert will not come very thick but the taste is amazing as the carrots are rich in fantastic aroma and vitamin A. Oh! You can’t ignore the aroma of cinnamon and cardamom.:)

Durga Puja (Navaratri to Dasera) , the most awaited festival for Bengalis  is knocking at our door .We are  excited about this festive season and I am eager  to share all my experience and recipes  during this time. This dessert and another so many desserts,recipes are part of our festive cousine.

Here is one of my favorite Protima (goddess Idol) from my previous album:

    Hi Tanusree,
    I plan to host an Indian regional food fair in October around navratras and Diwali. Would be testing and inviting regional recipes. Would you be interested to be a part of this festival?
