Pumpkin Carrot Halwa

I love the pumpkin curry or gummadikaya koora as its referred to in telugu the way my mom makes it.I made this for a contest in a online group 'm a member of.Enjoy.


  • 2 Cups finely grated Pumpkin1
  • Cup finely grated carrot
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom pwd
  • 6-8 cashews chopped
  • 4-6 raisins chopped
  • 2tbsps + 2 tsp Butter/Ghee
  • 1/2 Cup Milk

Fry cashews and raisins in very little ghee.Keep aside.Heat the remaining ghee and add grated carrots and fry for about 2 mins. Add the pumpkin and fry for about 4-5 mins. Add milk and stir.Let it cook on low to medium heat till both the carrot and pumpkin are fully cooked this would take about 20-25 mins (keep stirring). Add sugar, cardamom, fried cashews,raisins and combine.Cook on medium heat stirring continuously, till the mixture thickens.Transfer onto a greased plate and let cool a little.When its still warm ,stuff it into a greased cookie cutter or mold and very gently remove the cookie cutter or tap the mold and decorate it.Serve warm with icecream of ur flavor or serve at room temperature.

You can add or reduce the amount of sugar  according to your taste.
