POOSANIKKAI HALWA - (பூசணிக்காய் ஹல்வா)
Ingredients :
Poosanikai | White pumpkin - 2 Cups 
Sugar - 3/4 cup 
Ghee - 3 tblsp 
Cashew nuts - 5-6 
Cardamom powder - a pinch ( optional) 
Yellow / Red food color - a pinch

Preparation Method : 
Take out the skin and the seeds from the pumpkin. Grate the flesh of the pumpkin in a small grater. In a pan add little ghee and fry the cashew nuts till golden brown. Keep it aside. In the same pan add the grated pumpkin and cook in a low flame.  If the pumpkin has lot of water, just slightly squeeze the water.  No need to fully squeeze the water.  Cook the poosanikai in a low flame till it becomes soft.  It took 10 to 15 minutes to get the pumpkin cooked.  Add sugar and color powder.  Cook for few more minutes to get it into halwa consistency and the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.  Add cashew nuts and cardamom powder(if adding). Mix well.  Serve in room temperature
