Pumpkin halwa is an Indian sweet made during special occasions. This can be made with less effort, not like any other flour based halwa for which we need to put in some extra effort by keep on stirring the halwa. I used unrefined sugar for a healthier version. This delicious halwa can be paired up with a scoop of vanilla or butterscotch flavoured ice cream. And here is the recipe for pumpkin halwa.
