Microwave Watermelon Halwa

For the first time, i prepared a simple but a delicious halwa with the watermelon white rinds which we usually throw out, i prepared this easy breezy halwa in microwave oven... This halwa took less than 40 minutes to get ready and u wont stop having this droolworthy halwa...We love halwas with carrots very much but this halwa with watermelon rind was quite similar like the carrot halwa,yeah we relished each and every spoon of this yummy halwa and it vanished within less time when they were still warm...Am damn sure if u try this halwa once, u wont ever throw out the watermelon white rind anymore...With simple ingredients, this halwa tastes toooo delicious...

Carrot & Watermelon Halwa

2cups Watermelon white rinds (finely grated)
1/2cup Milk powder
1cup Sugar
1tbsp Cardamom powder
2tbsp Ghee
Few orange food colour
Few almond flakes

Take the grated watermelon white rinds in a microwave safe bowl, cook in high for 20minutes in microwave oven (stir thrice in between) until the watermelon rinds get half cooked, now add the milk powder, sugar, ghee and orange food colour, mix everything well and cook again for 10minutes in microwave oven in high (stir twice),finally add the cardamom powder,cook for 5minutes, give a stir..

Garnish with almond flakes and enjoy warm..
