Kaasi Halwa (White Pumpkin Halwa)

I wanted to try this for a long time and now only I had find time for it to try. First time trying and it really came very good. I took the recipe from kamala's corner, with very little changes. Original recipe goes with milk, sugar and pachchai karpooram, but i didnt use the pachchai karpooram and used condensed milk.

White Pumpkin - 1/2 kg
Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts, raisins, pista - 1 tsp each
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Saffron - a pinch (optional)
Any colour - i used green to make it different.

Peel off the skin of pumpkin and Grate it.
Filter/squeeze out the water as much as you can.
Now in a big pan, add 1 tsp ghee and fry the nuts and keep aside.
In the same pan, add the grated pumpkin and start cooking it with its own water.
When its water is fully dry, add condensed milk and keep on stirring in medium flame.
Little by little add ghee to it.
Add the green colour.
Keep stirring well until the ghee, start coming out from halwa.
Now add in the nuts and raisins, mix well and switch off the stove.
Serve hot or cold (i like both)
