Inida/ Pumpkin and Carrot Halva

Totally vegan, totally delicious.. i’m going Ella on you! This was made for us in the Sadhana Forest project, by one of the volunteers. Cooking for the mass’s I couldn’t really equate the proportions, but think rice pudding…so add spices as you would with this.

  •  Pumpkin
  • Carrot
  • Apple
  • Coconut (hard part grated and some milk)
  • Grounded Cardamon
  • Grounded Cinnanmon
  • Jaggery (if not I recon brown sugar would work)
  • Raisins
  • Ground or flaked almonds

Dice pumpkin and carrot pieces, boil until soft.  Drain, leaving a small amount of water and add grated coconut. Peel apple, cut into chunks and cook in a pan with a little butter until soft.Add Apple with mixture and blend until smooth, add a small amount of coconut milk to get mixture to a porridge like consistency. Melt sugar or Jaggery in another pot, add it in. (Jaggery should be sived to avoid bits). Add rounded cinnamon and cardamon powder. Blend once more. Then add raisins and almonds. Serve hot.
