About Gulab Halwa

Gulab Halwa is a twist to traditional Gajar ka Halwa. One day while I was making Gajar ka Halwa, I found some nice rose petals in my refrigerator.
To give a twist, I caramelized it and added it to the Halwa along with Rose Water and Essence. And to my surprise the taste came out very well.
Then next time, I added Beetroot to it to enhance the colour and this recipe was born. Hope you will like it.
