What are Mini Gajar Halwa Tartlets ?

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. This recipe comes as a fusion variation for the same, where the gajar ka halwa has been stuffed inside a french tart shell, giving it a crispy texture over the soft and sweet halwa.
