Pumpkin grated 3 cups(tightly packed)
Milk 4 cups
Sugar 1 1/4 cup(or as the sweetness of the pumpkin)
Ghee 1/4 cup
Raisins a few
Cashew nuts a few
Cardamom powder 3/4 tsp
Cornflour 1 tsp
Milk 1 tbsp
(Mix this and keep aside)*
-In a non stick saucepan add the grated pumpkin and milk.Boil till the pumpkin gets cooked(becomes tender) and the milk reduces in volume(slightly thick).
-When this mixture cools blend this till smooth (in a blender).
-Now heat a heavy bottomed deep vessel ,add 1/2 of the ghee to this and add 2-3 cardamom pods.
-Pour in the blended mixture and stir for 5 to10 minutes.
-Now add sugar and keep stirring at intervals in the beginning and then without taking hands in the end.
- Heat a non stick frying pan add ghee and fry the raisins and nuts.
-When the halwa starts thickening add this fried raisins and nuts along with the ghee.Also add cardamom powder.
-Add the corn flour milk paste* and mix well for sometime.
-Remove from fire when it reaches the consistency with the color changed to a golden brown.
-Transfer this into a greased bowl and serve when a little cooled.
-Delicious halwa is ready :)*Once the halwa has reached the consistency don't keep for a long time on the stove top,immediately transfer onto a greased bowl.Otherwise it might get harden.
*Be careful while stirring, use oven gloves and a long handled spatula.
*This tastes best when completely cooled.
