Today Iam sharing a simple and tasty sweet dish.. It is a halwa recipe with a combination of pumpkin and coconut.. Pumpkin halwa is a very popular Indian sweet dish usually made for special occasions,In India there are number of variations of halwa, made from a diverse range of ingredients.Especially carrots halwa is most popular in many places..Coming to this version,here I used fresh pumpkin. Fresh ghee gives nice aroma to the sweet and adjust the sugar as per your taste and I used unsweetened coconut powder which gives a nice crunchiness to the halwa.
If you want can use sweetened coconut but reduce the sugar quantity. Now,let`s check the recipe..CATEGORY-Easy Halwa varieties | Sweets Recipes | Gummadi Recipes |
