Yellow Pumpkin Halwa

Usually I prepare kootu with pumpkin. I really got bored to prepare it this week as I've recently prepared kootu with peerkankai. I thought why not try halwa again.  I tried cooking pumpkin with milk sometime back. It turned too mushy. I came across sharmispassion's halwa recipe where she has used only water to cook the pumpkin. So I sprinkled little water while cooking and now the result is excellent.I didn't add any color; it tasted and looked amazing.. :)


Yellow Pumpkin - grated - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar 1/4 cup
Ghee 2 tsp
Cardamom powder a pinch
Saffron strings for garnishing (or nuts)


Grate Pumpkin.


In a Pan, add one tsp of ghee and add the grated pumpkin. Fry for a while till the raw smell of the vegetable goes off and then sprinkle little water. Allow cooking on a low to medium flame until all water is absorbed. 

Now add the sugar and mix well. When the sugar is completely dissolved, add another tsp of ghee and fry till the ghee is combined well. Now add cardamom powder and saffron strings for garnishing.

Halwa is now ready to be served..
