Microwave Pumpkin N Coconut Halwa

Halwa with anything especially with coconut is always my favourite, here is a simple and delicious version of pumpkin and coconut halwa i tried out sterday through microwave cooking with grated pumpkin cooked in microwave which i turned out as puree and cooked dessicated coconut with this puree and sugar to prepare this marvellous, tempting and beautiful eyecatching colour simple halwa which doesnt need to stir continously but occasionally..This halwa was truly delicious and i relished each and every spoon, sorry for tempting u all...Yes we loved it, coz this halwa vanished within few minutes once they came out of the microwave oven and tastes fantastic when served warm..


1cup Grated pumpkins
1/2cup Sugar
1cup Dessicated coconut flakes
1/4cup Milk
1tsp Cardamom powder
10nos Cashew nuts
2tbsp Ghee
Almond nuts for garnishing

Cook the grated pumpkin in a microwave safe bowl along with milk in microwave oven for high upto 10minutes(stir in between)..take them off and let them cool...grind this cooked pumpkin as puree with a cup of water..Add water to get 1+1/2cup of pumpkin puree..Cook the pumpkin puree and coconut flakes with sugar again for 20minutes high in microwave oven(stir twice or thrice in between) until its turns as thick paste...heat the ghee for 5 minutes in high, add the cashew nuts to the hot ghee and cook again for 5minutes, add this hot ghee with cashew nuts to the halwa also add the cardamom powder and toss gently until everything gets well mixed..garnish the almond nuts...

Serve warm!!
