This pumpkin halwa was made by my elder sister-in-law during our India trip with all the family together and we decided to make kaddu halwa and poori for brunch cause for large number of people doing this also takes lot of time :) so we started peeling and grating pumpking then my elder SIL started to make halwa, myself and my co-sister started working on poori and it was super yummy meal for sure.


Since I was busy working on poori so I couldn't click the step-wise pictures but the halwa was so good that I didn't want to miss the oppurnity of not clicking the pictures so with whatver was available to use as prop and no idea of where I will get good lighting I quickly taken couple of pictures to share this wonderful recipe with you all.
