Aleev Kuvale Randho ( Garden cress and Ashgourd Halwa)


Aleev or Garden cress is a treasure house of  iron as well as omega 3 fatty acid and so should be regularly consumed for health benefits.

I was actually making Ash gourd halwa which is a very traditional sweet halwa known as Randho in Konkani  and was thinking what to do with the garden cress seeds  which were sitting in my pantry since long and suddenly decided to combine them both into this delicious halwa. Thus this fusion halwa was born.

It was no doubt a very delicious sweet relished by all and neverthless a guitly free dish. Today being the second sunday I planned to post this yummy sweet for lets-brunch-on-sundays  event started by Priya Suresh  and Veena  . It would surely make a healthy and yummy after brunch treat.




Ingredents :

1/2 cup ....................aleev ( Garden cress seeds)
2 cups....................peeled and grated Kuvale (ash gourd)
1 cup ....................sugar
3 to 4 tbsp..................milk powder ( or fresh cream )
1 tbsp......................almond slivered
1 tsp..........................cardamom powder
1 tbsp ......................ghee



Method : 


Wash and remove the skin and seeds if any from the ash gourd and grate it.

Soak the aleev in water (coconut water gives a better taste) for 1/2 an hour.

The size of aleev seeds will become double and semi transparent .

In a non stick pan add 1 tbsp ghee and stir fry grated ash gourd.

When it gives out lovely aroma add soaked aleev and stir for 5 to 10 minutes .

Now add sugar and keep on stirring till the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan.

Add milk powder and cardamom powder .

When the mixture starts leaving the side of pan spread it on a greased plate.

Add slivered almonds , mix well and spread on a greased plate.

Refridgerate the plate for 3 to 4 hours and then cut into desired shapes if wanted.
