Carrot and Pumpkin Halwa

This Republic day presenting you delicious Tri colour desert, Carrot and Pumpkin Halwa with Ice Cream.

The combination of hot halwa’s and the ice cream is marvellous.

In this recipe of making Carrot Halwa and pumpkin halwa, I have added Chenna.

Chenna is made by cuddled milk.

Boil the milk till it reduces the quantity, keep stirring in between

Add the vinegar and continue stirring, the milk starts to cuddle and separate from the whey. Drain it. The whey water can be used to knead the dough.

Wash the drained Chena in the water again

Chenna gives a rich taste to the halwa.
