Pumpkin Sweet




It is since a long time i made sweets,so i decided to make halwa with white pumpkin.But the output was not halwa but a very tasty sweet.My husband liked it a lot and ate the whole box.Try this once and i bet you will also like it.

Ingredients:
Winter Melon (white Pumpkin)-----------------2 cups
Milk-----------------------------------------1 1/4 cup
Sugar----------------------------------------1 1/2 cup
Ghee-----------------------------------------5 spoons.
Cashew---------------------------------------7
Cardamom powder------------------------------1 spoon

Procedure:
Cut the winter melon into small dices.
First fry the cashew in ghee and keep aside.
Fry the pumpkin pieces in ghee for a few minutes and then add milk along with cardamom.
Stir continuously so that the pumpkin gets cooked and dissolve in milk.
When the pumpkin is three fourth cooked add the sugar and keep on stirring.
When it is about to come out of the vessel add the ghee and mix it thoroughly and change it to a greased vessel.

Cardamom gives a wonderful flavor to this sweet.I would like to post this recipe for the think spice-cardamom event.
This is really a very good dessert and tastes yummy.
