Payasam is a part of every special ocassion in most Indian families. Now, what if it is made with a vegetable. Does it make it healthy? Well, thats a question to ponder on. But i must say that this Pumpkin payasam is really delicious and is easy to make.

First soak the cashewnuts in hot milk and let it soak for some time. Then grind it to a fine paste.

To make this payasam, you have to remove the skin of the pumpkin, cut it into pieces and steam cook it. When it is soft and cooked properly, smash it to a smooth paste to a spoon when hot. Make sure there are no lumps.

Now mix the pumpkin and cashew paste with the coconut milk. Add sugar as required. Though I have mentioned half a cup of sugar, this is just an approximate measurement. Make sure to taste the kheer and add sugar if you need more.

Cook it in low flame for 5 minutes. Keep on stirring.

The last step is to add powdered cardamom to this. Mix well. Your pumpkin payasam is ready! Garnish with chopped almonds. You can have it hot or chilled.
