White Pumpkin Halwa

My first try...Made this for Deepavali, This entry goes for
1) Priti's Diwali Celebration Event.
2) AFAM - Pumpkin hosted by Madhuram of Eggless Cooking
3) JFI - Festival Treat Event guest hosted by Srivalli of Cooking 4 All Seasons




Ingredients:

White Pumpkin- 2cups (grated)
sugar- 1 1/2 cups (as per taste)
ghee- 3 tbsp
cardamom- 3
milk- 1
cupcashews and raisins- 1 tbsp each


Procedure:





Peel off the outer skin from the pumpkin and grate it. Squeeze out the excess water from the gratings. Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a kadai and add the grated pumpkin and broken cardamom. Saute until any remaing water is absorbed. Add sugar and stir well. Now add milk and cook on low flame till the pumpkin is cooked soft and all the milk is absorbed. Now the halwa should be in a semi solid stage. Add ghee little by little stirring till you get the halwa continuously. Then add the fried nuts, raisins . When the halwa leaves the sides of the pan switch off the stove. Serve this warm or at room temperature. Here is a bite for you too all
