Gajjar Halwa cups with Badaam Pista Kesar Ice cream are cups made with carrot halwa and filled with ice cream to make a delicious dessert .
September , and we begin with another Mega Marathon. This time we shall post Sweets and Snacks all through the month . You can read more on it here. Week 1 shall feature Sweets. For the very first day I have some Gajjar Halwa Cups !…and with Ice cream. A double dessert!
Gajjar ka halwa is a Indian dessert made with carrots ,milk and sugar . This is one dessert which is very popular in the North . we get the typical sweet , juicy red carrots during winters and that’s the best time to enjoy this halwa . Well we do make halwa quite often , but this time I moulded the halwa into cups . Cups to serve ice cream . The fusion of these two desserts is made in heaven , though traditionally the halwa is served hot with a cold ice cream but here both the desserts are served cold and trust me they taste out of the world . One can serve any flavour of ice cream but I wanted to give it a nice colour combination so opted for Badam Pista Kesar .
The cups are easy to make , you just need to mould the Halwa into cups using silicone cup cake moulds . These can be made as soon as the halwa is ready . After moulding place them into the refrigerator for a couple of hours . Once set you can demould and stock them in a box in the frig . Remove these about an hour before the party and serve ice cream in these . You could also serve Shrikhand . It makes a beautiful dessert for parties which can be pre prepared . I am sure your guests will be totally floored with it .
