3 cups of peeled white pumpkins chunks.
Grate them and drain the water, saving some water to help cooking process..
I decided on a short cut by cutting them to small chunks, cooking in a rice cooker till the water drained well.
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp ghee/melted butter
some toasted cashew nuts.
3/4 cup milk powder
1/2 cup full cream milk
In a deep heavy bottomed vessel or pan ,add the grated pumpkin, thick milk and cook on a slow flame .
When the water is almost dried out, add the sugar, saffron strands, toasted cashew nuts and stir well.
Add the milk powder , mix well till the halva is thickened .
Delicious pumpkin halwais ready.
Add 2-3 tbsp of ghee at the end , stir well and allow halwa to cool. Serve chilled or warm.
