This recipe is a nice variation to have pumpkin in the form of a sweet..So next time you have guests coming up,you can surprise them with these lovely home-made pumpkin barfis :)
freshly grated coconut(optional)
ghee for greasing
Wash the pumpkin and grate it.
Heat a non-stick pan.
Cook the grated pumpkin on the pan till all the moisture evaporates.
Once done remove the pumpkin in a bowl.
Take equal quantity of sugar as the pumpkin.
Now mix the sugar,pumpkin and coconut and cook it on the pan.
After 5min add cardamom powder.
Keep stirring constantly till the mix hardens.
For 1 big bowl/katori of pumpkin,sugar I added 2tbspn of coconut.This quantity will take around 15-20min to harden.
Grease a plate with ghee and take out the mixture onto it.
Spread it and let it cool to room temperature.
Cut the barfis into desired shapes.
Tasty pumpkin barfis are ready :)
