Recipe for Pumpkin (Damroot) Halwa

A very famous sweet dish. I dont think this is something specific to any particular region of India. But have to do some research. Ingredients: White Pumpkin - 2 cups (grated) Milk - 2 cups milk Milk Maid - 1/2 cup Sugar - 1 cup Khoa- 1/2 cup grated Cardamom Powder - 1 pinch Cashew Nuts - 10 to 12 nos Ghee - 1/4 cup Kesar Powder - 1/2 pinch Method: Squeeze out the excess water from the Pumkin. In a flat hard bottom pan boil milk and when it comes to boil add grated pumpkin and cardamom powder. In 1 tsp of water mix kesar powder and add it to the pan. Keep stirring till the milk gets absorbed by the pumpkin. Add sugar and cook in low flame. Add 2 tbsp of ghee and stir continuously till the ghee gets separated. Add grated khoa to the cooked halwa. The halwa will turn dry when cooked fully. In ghee fry the cashewnuts till golden brown. Add it to the halwa
