What is Gajar ka Halwa?

​​The gajar ka halwa first came to our humble abode during the Mughal era. The name was derived from the Arabic word halwa, which means sweet. Even though halwa is closely related to Punjabi cuisine, it isn't sure whether it originated there or not. Punjab is associated with gajar ka halwa because it is similar to other Punjabi halwas.
