|Pumpkin Halwa | Kaddu Ki Halwa using Paneer|
Pumpkin is often a symbol of festivity not only in India, but also in other countries. Pumpkin is often used to make pies, cakes and desserts. In India it is used widely to make pumpkin halwa (kaddu ka halwa), kaddu ka kheer or pumpkin curry. Our festivals are incomplete without sweets dishes that please our family and friends. This pumpkin halwa is a slight variation to the regular halwa that is made only with milk and sugar. If you are a paneer lover, you will enjoy this.
I have used saffron to add flavor and color to the halwa and is optional. If you do not like to use paneer, you can just eliminate and use some milk in place of it with reduced sugar.
I have another version of this pumpkin halwa recipe that is prepared with moong dal. if you are interested , do check it here.
