Pumpkin Halwa Recipe

Makes 12 servings

This is an Indian Sweet, and it is delicious!  You can cut back on the sugar if you need to, and butter would work for the ghee, if you don't have any.  Created by Svapna Sabnis.

16 cups shredded pumpkin
1 Tbsp ghee
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup sliced almonds (for garnish)

Stir fry pumpkin in ghee on low heat until reduced to about 1/4 volume.  Add brown sugar and cardamom.  Stir 5 minutes.  Top with almonds before serving warm.  Svapna says she did the first part in her slow cooker, and it made the process much easier.
