Celebrating My Lil Sis’s  Lil Lil Angel Gargi’s Arrival with this Sweet Post. Pumpkin Rasamalai, Sounded so different, so gave it a try, came out really good.

Yellow Pumpkin – 1 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Milk – 6 cups
Sooji/Rawa – 4 tbsp
Freshly grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
Rose water – few drops
oil for frying

Peel and cube the pumpkin and cook them soft with enough water. Drain the excess water and mash them well. Boil Milk in a heavy-bottom pan and reduce it to half. Add sugar and cardamom powder and take it off the flame.
In another bowl mix the mashed pumpkins, grated coconut and sooji. Make small balls of this mixture and deep fry them in oil. Soak these pumpkin balls in the milk mixture and add rose water. Garnish with nuts.  Chill and Serve.
