an easy and quick Halwa made from only 2 main ingredients Pumpkin Puree and Sweetened Condensed Milk. This sweet tastes more similar to Milk Peda / Palgova as we have used condensed milk. It can be prepared in less than 20 mins and best enjoyed when served cold or at room temp.
I have used pumpkin puree for this Halwa recipe, but you can even use grated Pumpkin and follow the method. In case if you are using grated ones, then squeeze out the water completely from grated pumpkin and then use it for cooking. You can even add grated nuts for crunchiness.
Lets check the recipe
- 1 cup Pumpkin Puree
- 1/2 cup Milkmaid (Condensed Milk)
- 1 tea spoon cardamom powder
- 1 tea spoon oil / ghee
Heat a non stick pan and add 1 tsp oil / ghee. Pour pumpkin puree and cook on low flame for 2-5 mins. Add cardamom powder and stir well.
Add milkmaid and cook on low-medium flame for 13-15 mins till the mixture becomes thick and starts leaving the sides of pan.
At this stage all the moisture in pumpkin will be absorbed and the mixture will be thick.
Remove from the heat and serve cold.
