Watermelon Rind Halwa/Pudding

Working hard on waste management in society. Trying new practices to reduce waste. Doing composting at home for more than a year and encouraging people.

When we eat watermelon we throw a large amount of watermelon rind which contains vitamins. So started making different varieties of dishes out of rinds. After trying out watermelon rind  curry and watermelon rind raita,here is the dessert recipe. Ohhh I just loved this halwa.

2 cup grated watermelon rind
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar(+ as needed)
3 to 4 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Peel only hard layer of rinds and grate them.

Heat ghee in a pan and add cardamom powder.

Add grated rinds and mix well.Saute and cook for 5 min.

Add milk and let it cook until all milk get absorbed.It may take 10 to 15 min on medium flame.Saute occasionally.

After this I too added some pieces of watermelon that is totally optional.You can see some red colour
