Pumpkin Halwa

Halwa with Pumpkin? That was my first reaction when i saw this Pumpkin Halwa recipe a while back. Off late, blogs have come out with loads of Pumpkin recipes, Pumpkin pie, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin cake, tarts and what not? Typically a vegetable that’s used for curries and Halloween, this has now taken over the baking and treats section as well…As usual, the uniqueness of the recipe is what got me curious, and I knew I had to try this for the Diwali season.

Diwali, for me is all about sweets, sweets and sweets, and then lighting diyas, the sound of crackers and lights that never stop (especially in Chennai…I never sleep during Diwali, as you never have a minute of silence…All you can hear are those roars and bursts of crackers and beautiful fireworks.

As we had a long weekend, I thought I will give this recipe a try, although unsure about how it would taste, however, if carrot halwa can taste amazing, so can this recipe, right?

Offlate, pumpkin is used in all recipes, for cakes, breads, soups and what not…..So is this halwa too….Apart from the main ingredient, most of the process is similar to that of the carrot halwa. The grated pumpkin is fried in ghee and then cooked in milk and sugar added to create this beautiful little piece of sweetness.

If you have guests and relatives for the evening, make sure to double or triple the measure mentioned in the recipe below.
