How to make Pumkin Halwa Tart

  1. In a pan, put in the pure ghee. Once warm, add in the grated pumpkin. Stir it for a bit. The color of ghee will turn yellow-orange. Add in the cardamom powder and the condensed milk.
  2. Sprinkle some water and let it cook on simmer until done. This halwa does not require hours of cooking. Pumpkin cooks in a jiffy.
  3. In a microwave safe bow, add in the cream and butter. Heat it for 30 secs. Heat it until hot. Put in the chopped chocolate. Stir it well with a spatula. If not smooth, heat it again for 20 seconds. Once smooth, put it to chill.
  4. Mix the flour with almond meal and salt. Mix in the butter with a hand blender, until mixed well. Mix in the egg. Don’t overmix. Put this into a cling film and refrigerate for atleast 4 hrs or overnight.
  5. Preheat the oven at 180 degree celcius. Roll out the dough between two baking paper sheets. Roll out not too thin not too thick. Carefully lift it and place it on the greased tart tin. Press it . cover entirely , removing the excess.
  6. Prick twice or thrice with a fork. Place a piece of baking paper over it. Put some lentil / grain to cover it. Blind bake for 20-22 mins or until done. Let it cool.
  7. Spread some ganache over the tart base so as to fill it half. Now spoon in the pumpkin halwa to fill the tart. Let it chill thoroughly. Drizzle some ganache if u wish or simply garnish with some pistachio crumbs.

My Tip:

You can keep the pumpkin halwa as a surprise too. Put a little halwa at the base of the tart , Fill it with ganache and garnish with pistachio. The halwa would be visible only when you slice the tart.
