A common Indian sweet is Gajjar Ka Halwa ~ Grated Carrot Halwa with chai spices, raisins and cashews caramelized with sugar. This is the same recipe, but I just used pumpkin instead of carrot.
This sweet can be served in cup garnished with nuts or molded into an Indian sweet.

Method of Preparation:
1) In a large skillet, melt ghee on medium-low heat. Add jaggery and dissolve into ghee.
2) Add shredded pumpkin. Place the lid on the skillet and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes, until pumpkin is cooked.
