How to make Pumpkin Savoury

  1. Boil the pumpkin until it softens.
  2. Next, boil the milk, add 50 gms of sugar and reduce it to 1/3rd of its quantity.
  3. Take a pan, add 25 gm mawa, 25 gm sugar, 4 tsp of cashew powder and cook over heat. When it softens, remove it aside.
  4. In another pan, heat the ghee, then add the pumpkin and fry for 10 mins.
  5. After the pumpkin is properly fried add 150 gm sugar, 100 gm mawa, cardamom powder and rose water. Keep cooking until it forms a dough consistency.
  6. After it cools down, divide it into 8 balls. In each ball, add the cashew nut and mawa paste inside and make a heart shape.
  7. Make a bed of the reduced milk and place the sweets on top of it.
  8. Garnish it with whole cashews and varak.

My Tip:

The dough should neither be of a very hard or very soft consistency.
