  1. Archana you didnt say how to cut the carrot :(

  2. Ramji.. Kindly see the first line of the method section. I have mentioned GRATE the carrot. It means you need not cut them just to grate them into small juliens with a grater. Well if u r unaware of what is a grateer then u need to cut them into chunks and run in a mixer to get them crushed :)

  3. I never thought of making halva with carrots... I am sure it is delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  4. @Eftychia thanks for dropping in..well its one of the common sweet in India :)
