This halwa is a tasty, sticky treat containing the positive-pranic and healthful ash gourd. Daily consumption of ash gourd greatly enhances one’s intellectual capabilities.
Yield: Serves 4
Ash gourd (white pumpkin), peeled, grated: 300-400 g
Ghee: 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup
Green Cardamom powder: 1 tsp
- Squeeze the grated ash gourd pulp by hand to remove excess liquid or, alternatively, allow the pulp to sit in a sieve/colander for some time until the juice runs out.
- Heat the ghee and sauté the cashews in it until golden brown. Remove the cashews with a slotted spoon and keep aside until needed.
- To the same ghee, add the grated ash gourd and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the sugar and cardamom powder.
- Cook, stirring continuously until the halwa begins to leave the sides of the pan and becomes a homogenous mass. Add the fried cashews and mix well.
- Cool and serve
