Many of us do not prefer to have Kaddu or Green Pumpkin as vegetable dish but Kaddu Ka Halwa or Green Pumpkin pudding is something that every family member will love to have.
Ingredients for Kaddu Ka Halwa
- Kaddu – 2 kgs
- Milk – 1 cup

Procedure for preparing Kaddu Ka Halwa
Peel off the kaddu skin and cut them into medium sized pieces. Take the beans out of it and pressure cook it in milk and cardamom till it’s tender.
Take out the mixture and smash it in a big vessel.
Heat the smashed mixture till water evaporates. Now add sugar and green colour. Mix it well. In few minutes water will be released again but this time add dry milk powder before water evaporates.
SautÃ© it for 5 minutes and then add ghee. Stir continuously till the ghee is released.
Remove from heat & serve hot with cashew nut toppings.
You can add khoya / mawa or milkmaid instead of dry milk powder.
