Re-posting ABC halwa

Wondering what this ABC halwa is :). It stands for apple, banana and carrot halwa and can be prepared very quickly. Its a favorite sweet for kids.

My mother-in-law has come to visit us.  We both are very enthusiastic about preparing sweets because, sweet is all time favorite at our place. We have prepared many sweets in the last few months and did not want to repeat any and were wondering what do we prepare next. Fortunately she had brought her recipe book where, she found the recipe for this sweet . I prepped everything quickly and the sweet was ready in minutes.


carrot- 2(grated)



Whipping cream-1/4 tin

Shredded Coconut-4 tbsp

Ghee-3 tbsp

Sugar-4 tbsp (depending on the sweetness of the fruit)

Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp

Cashew and raisins for garnishing


In a heavy bottom pan, heat ghee, add cashews ( I added around 10-12 cashews, and 10-15 raisins) fry until golden brown. Add raisins, remove quickly and keep aside.

Next add grated carrot and apple into the ghee,cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add banana and whipping cream (can use milk too) and mix well. Cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add sugar( if the fruits are sweet enough, add less sugar. Sugar can be added at any point) and mix shredded coconut. Do not cook too much after adding the coconut. You would want to leave it a bit crunchy. Turn off the heat, Mix cardamom powder and garnish with cashews and raisins.

    I made this for my family yesterday and they all loved it. My son who doesn’t eat apples, loved this sweet. Thanks to your sweet and the recipe which made him eat the fruit 😉

  2. This looks so delicious and I see that you have included whipped cream in it as well and that makes this recipe more yummy and a step ahead of other halwas for me. 🙂
