Pumpkin Almond Halwa

Pumpkin Halwa, a real feast for sweet lovers..although here its peak season for pumpkins, they r really cheap n can get a very easily in farmer's market...thought of making soups, i bought them but finally prepared them as halwa, to give a twist i have added half a cup of almond powder to give them more taste...


1cup Grated Pumpkin
1/2cup Almond Powder
1/4cup Ghee
3/4cup Sugar
10nos Cashew pieces
1tsp Cardamom powder

Heat 2tsp of ghee in a heavy bottomed pan...add the finely grated pumpkin (i prefer to grate the pumpkin really very thin so that they will get cooked very easily) to the hot ghee n stir them for a while until they pumpkin get dry, now add the sugar, almond powder..let the pumpkin pieces get well cooked with sugar for a while, keep the flame in medium high n let them cook for 15minutes, add the ghee little by little to the halwa n cook until they get off from the bottom of the vessel, add the cardamom powder n cashew pieces...cook them again for 10 minutes in simmer...

Serve them hot or chilled..

Thanks for the recipe Priya. I also prepare a different version of this halwa, instead of adding almond powder, I add the MTR Badam Feast. We can also prepare it in the microwave oven.
