How to prepare Kaddu ki Kheer
Start by cutting the pumpkin in a few big pieces and then peeling off the skin. Take care not to make the pieces too small, as you will have to grate them next! After grating the pumpkin, you can take the cashew nuts and almonds and break them into pieces of the size that you want to have in your dish.
Now place a big wok onto the stove, pour the milk into it and bring it to a boil. When the milk is hot and starting to rise, add the grated pumpkin. Let it cook on medium heat while stirring. This is important: you will need to keep on stirring while the pumpkin is cooking and getting soft. This will usually take about 30 minutes.
When the pumpkin is soft and the milk has thickened, you can add the nuts as well as the sugar. Stir well, so that they get mixed into the pumpkin and milk. Stir some more until the sugar is dissolved. Once that is the fact, you can take your wok off the stove – your dish is ready!
Finally, you can add saffron on top for decoration – enjoy!
