Pumpkin Pudding,Halwa, Asian Style Pumpkin Dessert
Pumpkin Halwa Recipe
Pumpkin is very nutritious food. It contains lots of minerals and vitamins and low in calories. It is rich in a powerful antioxidant called beta carotene. This anti oxidant is very important for your skin health, eyes and for immunity.
This is a very rich dessert, addition of dry fruits make it irresistible. It can be made in advance and can last up to two weeks in fridge. This is the second time I made this dessert. First time it was sent to 4 friends as a gift and they called back to ask for recipe. I am sure you will like it too like others.
