I bought this beautiful work of art from Kolkata. Maa Durga is placed for Pooja on these 9 days of Navratri.
1 cup grated white pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup khoya (mawa)
Dry fruite to garnish
1 tsp cardamom powder
2-3 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
In a pan heat 1 tsp ghee and saute cashew nuts and raisins till golden, remove and set aside. In the same pan add the remaining ghee and saute the grated pumpkin on medium heat till the raw smell of the pumpkin leaves. Add cardamom powder, sugar and khoya to the pumpkin. Cook till the ingredients combine well and the moisture dries up.
Add dryfruits and remove from heat. Serve warm.
