Pumpkin and Dates Pudding/Halwa
Pumpkin is a very versatile veggyyy and one of my favorite too… it goes very well with both sweet and savory dishes. Very first post of my blog was a savory side dish with pumpkin – Pumpkin Curry.
This dessert idea I got from my cousin S, who is a contestant of a cooking reality show,playing in Kerala local channel. This was a winner recipe on that day and judges loved it and gave very good comment. He did it with pumpkin and berry and I didn’t have berries handy since this halwa was planned last minute for my guest as a dessert. And here as well it was a winner, my guest too loved it. They packed and took some with them.
Anyways……My wishes and prayers are always with him….good luck bro…keep going!!👍
This is a rich dessert,yet nutritious.You get the nutrition from pumpkin and dates. Added roasted cashew for crunchiness. Addition of milk and condensed milk gave little more richness. Touch of ghee gave this pumpkin dessert an extra punch. This was heavenly!!! I am sure you gonna enjoy every bit of it!
If your kids doesn’t love vegetables, this is the best idea to make them eat….the power pack of Vitamins – Pumpkin!!! They will be happy to have dessert and you can be satisfied of making them eat some veg.
