Pumpkin halwa – quick dessert recipes

I first tasted this sweet during my cousin’s wedding and since then I have seen this in most of the tamil wedding parties. I had little pumpkin left after using it for a subji. So thought of trying this.It was so easy to make, took very less time and tasted really good. My hubby simply loved it.
