Doodhi Halwa recipe


  • White pumpkin / Doodhi grated - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 1 & 1/2 cup
  • Kowa - 1 cup
  • Cardamom a pinch
  • Rose water few drops (opt) I didn''t use
  • For Garnish
  • Roasted nuts
  • Ghee - 1 tsp

Cooking Instructions

Peel the outer skin and grate the pumpkin. Do not squeeze or throw away the water.

Easy way to get around this halwa, would be to pressure cooking it till soft.

Then add the sugar and cook on high, while you keep stirring it. Add cardamom. Cook till the sugar and pumpkin solidifies.

Then crumble the plain kova and simmer for 5 mins, while you mix it well.

In another pan, heat ghee and roast the nuts. Then sprinkle this over the halwa.

This had the consistency to become more solid, but I removed while it was still soft and not so thick.

Finally garnish with roasted almond.
