Mixed vegetable halwa
Yes, you heard it right. This is a halwa made with different vegetables and is another option when you have a really sweet tooth like me. Use regular vegetables that you have at home like carrots, chow chow, potatoes, white pumpkin, yellow pumpkin, green beans, bottle gourd, cabbage and even cauliflower. Most of the vegetables can be used raw except for a couple (like cabbage and cauliflower) that need to be cooked to remove the pungency.
This is a crumbly halwa, not a soft and gooey one and it pairs very well with vanilla ice cream.
Add most of the fried almonds (keeping some aside for garnishing) and powdered cardamom and mix well. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with remaining almond slivers.
