  1. Thank you.For not making it in the Indian way.It's not that I'm against that nation.It's simply that our ma and khalas watch too much serial and learn to make it by grating it as shown in the serial. They have long forgotten the Bangladeshi way of preparing it.I know many among our generation who doesn't know that carrot halwa can be made from carrot puree.And thanks once again.

  2. Madam India is such a big country u will find hundred ways of making Carrot sweet dishes in mu country !!
