Pumpkin Halwa

This dessert recipe is picked from Mahanandi's Blog .With a slight change in the recipe. Actually it was Pumpkin Burfi, I made it halwa. Hope u enjoy this recipe.

I made this Pumpkin Halwa on the ocassion of Deepavali. It came out good. So here is the recipe below....


2 cup grated Yellow Pumpkin
8-10 Almonds
2 cup whole Milk
1 cup Sugar
1 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Rose water
1 tsp cardamom powder

Almond powder

Soak half-cup almonds in warm water for about 2 hours. Remove the skins and make a smooth powder in a food processor.

Milk-Sugar syrup

Meanwhile to prepare milk-sugar syrup take 2 cups of whole milk and 1 cups of sugar in a big, thick-bottomed vessel. Cook the mixture until is gets thick and is reduced to about half of the original quantity. Takes about 30 to 35 minutes.


1. In a big wide bottomed vessel, heat about 1 tbsp of ghee on medium heat.
2. Add the grated pumpkin to the melted ghee.Gently mix and cook the pumpkin. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring in between, until the raw smell of pumpkin disappears and color changes from yellow to orange-yellow.
