Microwave Kasi halwa or Ash gourd halwa- easy microwave dessert recipe
And then just yesterday, while browsing, I saw this ashgourd halwa in jayashree's blog. She had posted it yesterday. The colour was so vibrant and recipe seemed to be quite easy, that too using a microwave. I wanted to make it immediately and felt that she had just posted for me!!!
It came out really good, tasted great and was a hit at home.
- Microwave ashgourd without adding any water for 8 minutes on high heat till the raw smell goes. Allow it to cool completely. Measure the pulp. I got a little more than 1.5 cups of pulp and used 1 cup of sugar for it. Adjust sugar depending on how much pulp you have left after cooking the gourd.
- Combine the cooked gourd, sugar and food colour and microwave on high for 8 minutes. Add 2 tsp of ghee and mix well. Heat for another 6 minutes, checking every now and then to make sure it doesn't become too hard. Roast rava until golden brown in 2 tsp of ghee. Add this to the halwa and heat for one minute. Garnish with sliced cashews or almonds.
