Pumpkin Halwa or Kaddu Ka halwa is a North Indian dessert which is typically cooked during the festivals like Holi. This halwa is very simple to make. We can make it just like carrot halwa with khoya or condensed milk. I used khoya in the recipe, you can even make it without khoya. Addition of khoya makes the halwa delicious and nutritious.
When I told my mom that I made pumpkin halwa for Holi, she was surprised. My lunch mates tasted this halwa first and loved it. They said that it was delicious and loved divine. One of my friend loves sweets and she could not even make out that it was made from pumpkin.
Even pumpkin haters will love this halwa as it is almost impossible for anyone to guess that the halwa is made from pumpkin. Addition of sugar to this halwa can be altered depending on the sweetness of the pumpkin. If your kids or any family member does not like pumpkin, make this yummy halwa and serve. They will surely love it.
Also pumpkins are a power house of nutrition. They promote eye health as they are rich in vitamin A, lower blood pressure, promote heart health and boost immunity. Add pumpkin to your diet and reap the health benefits.
