Written By Unknown on Friday, October 28, 2011 | October 28, 2011

Lovely Yellow Orange pumpkin is the fruit of the season and since today its Halloween,
everywhere it is pumpkin-pumpkin all the way. I made This Halwa for Diwali, although a bit late posting it.This recipe is my Mom's version of making Pumpkin halwa, I added Little Saffron strands to it.

Ingredients :-
  1. 1 small butternut squash/pumpkin (4 cups of grated Pumpkin)
  2. 4 tbsp ghee
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons raisins
  5. 4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  6. 1 cup milk
  7. 6 almonds peeled and finely chopped
  8. 1/2  tsp ( 8-10 strands) of saffron

Method :-
  1. Peel the skin of pumpkin and remove off the seeds and membrane,grate it.You should have about 4 cups of grated squash.
  2. Heat ghee in wide pan, add the grated pumpkin. Cook, stirring for about 2 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add milk to it and cook for about 10 mins till pumpkin is cooked, stir it in between so that it does not stick to the pan.
  4. Add Sugar, chopped almonds , raisins and Cardamom , mix it well an let it cook for about 10 mins till all the milk has been absorbed by the grated pumpkin and its no longer watery.
  5. Soak Saffron strands in 1 tbsp milk for 15 mins.
  6. Once cooked garnish it with soaked saffron strands, serve it hot.
