Kali Gajar Ki Burfi




There are three types of carrots which are most popular; Red, orange and black. Red and Orange carrots easily available but the black one is available only in winters and the purple/black carrot is found only in few parts of north india.
Red carrot halwa is more popular in north. Orange carrot usually used in chinese recipes.
And most popular dish using
black carrots is kanji.
Back carrot halwa is very popular dessert in uttar pradesh and you can buy it in few shops.
Black Carrots are more nutritious and tastier then red carrots.
Black Carrot halwa/kanji id cooked similarly to red carrots halwa. But it take less time.

  1. Such a lovely and delish looking burfi Hema. I've seen black carrots in Canada but have never used them. Next time I get any black carrots, would love to try out this burfi. Wish black carrots were available in the rest of India.
