This is to thank each one of YOU reading this, for your interest, appreciation, support and encouragement for my work here. It’s been a great journey blogging, meeting and connecting with new people and I’d like to thank you all for being a part of it. A little treat for you – recipe of Pumpkin halwa I learnt from Ma. 🙂

Pumpkin halwa

I remember celebrating Independence Day in India as a kid. August 15th is a National holiday in India, so the celebrations were held a day before in school, full with all sorts of festivities, games, entertainment, sweets and the tri-colors of our National flag floating everywhere. But the memories I have of Independence Day other than the colors and celebrations, is the flavour and sweet aroma of yellow pumpkin cooking in ghee and milk, of Kadoo Halwa, that Ma cooked on such holidays.
