Carrot Seviyan Halwa is a delicious creamy milk sweet made with vermicelli and carrot. The texture is more like a halwa than a payasam and is so addictive.
This sweet is a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day, which falls on May 14th. Amma is so fond of sweets and this sweet was in fact prepared by her, while I was making the Punjabi Thali.
Being busy making all the dishes, I completely forgot to dish out a sweet. I asked Amma to make something she loves and from Punjabi cuisine. She came up with this version. The halwa was so sinful, that most of it was completed by me.
Do make this and enjoy the day with your Mom!
This sweet hardly takes time to get done and you can make this when you have surprise guests at home.
Though I am not very fond of sweets, everything that Amma makes is my favorite and I enjoyed this so much. This is one of the frequently made sweet now.Carrot Seviyan Halwa
