Carrot Halwa is a traditionally a Punjabi dish made with purple carrots. Purple carrots have almost disappeared from India, so we use regular carrots (orange one) to replace purple carrots.

Orange is not the original color of carrots - purple is! Dutch farmers harvested an orange carrot to match their country’s color. The “traditional” purple variety tastes sweeter, and is especially rich in anthocyanins, which also act as antioxidants. Carrot Halwa is very popular among Indian sweets and it has rich in vitamin A due to the carrot as main ingredient.
