Halwa is a very popular Indian dessert. There are a wide variety of halwa recipes. This Diwali I tried to blend the basic halwa recipe along with pumpkin and  rose flavor.The outcome was a super rich dessert . My friends and family loved it.


Let’s check the recipe:

  • Sugar powder / sugar- 2 cups
  • Sweet condensed milk- 1/2 tin

  • Saffron- a pinch ( soak it in 2 tablespoon milk at least for an hour)
  • Pistachio- a handful( finely chopped )
  • Almond- a handful ( finely chopped )

  3. Now cook this for 8-10 minutes on medium flame.We have to stir it continuously without fail in order to prevent the halwa from sticking to the bottom.
  4. Now add the rest of the condensed milk, chopped almonds and pistachios.Stir continuously till the mixture becomes thick and well cooked. Most probably it will take 12-15 minutes to reach the desired consistency.Rose Flavored Pumpkin Halwa, an great Indian festive dessert| www.nimmiafzal.com
