Kashi Halwa

Kashi Halwa or Dumroot Halwa is made from ash gourd or white pumpkin. Kashi Halwa is a famous sweet of Karnataka. It is served in most Indian weddings alongside Ice Cream. Hot Kashi Halwa with cold vanilla Ice Cream is a match made in heaven.

Kashi halwa is very tasty and easy to prepare but it is very time-consuming. Ash gourd releases a lot of water when you grate it. Therefore it takes a lot of time for all the water to get dried up. You could squeeze all the water and then add to save some time. I did not do that so I had to cook for 3 hours. I have used yellow food colour you can use turmeric powder too. You can serve it plain or with Vanilla ice cream. I had it with my Pink Passion Ice Cream.
