Nothing feels quite as satisfying as digging into a bowl of warm gajar ka halwa while it rains outside. There is something inexplicably pleasurable about enjoying a warm dessert or beverage during the monsoon. As it appears, we are not the only ones who are in the mood to relish a decadent dessert in this weather. Kajol seems to be satiating her sweet tooth cravings as well with a plate of gajar ka halwa.

Well, when I'm hungry I can eat you too.” Read more about how Kajol responded to all those who made fun of her eating habit here.
