A bit slow with my recipe posts these days, I know it. But the fact is that I have been too busy with other things and posts on my other blog site sweetannu.com . But Nonetheless today I am back with another Indian dessert recipe, low on sugar but high on nutrition and taste.
Its a red pumpkin Halwa. Pumpkin is better known as kaddu or bhopla in our language. It belongs to Cucurbita family like
cucumbers, squash. Slightly sweet, the pumpkin is an excellent source of
carotenes, minerals and antioxidants vitamins such as vitamin-A, vitamin-C, and vitamin-E.
So lets not waste any more time and get into making of the recipe.
2 tbsp Ghee
2 cups Grated Pumpkin
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Milk
Handful of Dry fruits ( Almonds, walnuts and raisins)
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
6-8 strands of Saffron
