No sugar Pumpkin Mawa Burfi

My first try to make Pumpkin Burfi.

Wanted to try something which is sweet in itself so that I can avoid using added sugar. Added Mawa for binding and a little ghee.Delicious and flavourful!

Ingredients:

1,5 cups of grated Pumpkin

200 grams Mawa/khoya

Cardamom-1/4 spoon

Ghee-3-4 table spoons

Nuts of your choice-2 table spoons

Method: Grate the peeled pumpkin.

If you are using ready to use mawa or store bought mawa then thaw it and crumble it.

In a pan add a table spoon of ghee and roast the crumbled mawa till it changes colour and also turns into a ball.It will take about 7 minutes.

Now keep the mawa aside.

In the same pan add another table spoon of ghee and roast the pumpkin till you get a sweet aroma. It will take about 5 to 6 minutes.

Now mix the pumpkin and the mawa and on low flame keep moving your hands until they blend together.

Once it forms a dough like consistency switch off the flame.

Add the remaining ghee and cardamom powder and some nuts.

Transfer it to a ghee smeared tin or plate preferably a rectangular or square one so that you get neat cuts.

Now garnish some nuts on the top and press lightly with the help of a spatula.

Refrigerate for about 2-3 hours and then cut them with the help of a knife into neat

bits.

Pl note:

I have used home made mawa.

You can knead 2 cups of Milk powder with cold milk to a dough preferably firm dough adding a little ghee.

Steam the dough for 5-6 minutes and when cool you can use it.
