A Treat for Eid

Pumpkin Halva

October not only marks the beginning of autumn it also marks the beginning of the holiday season, starting with Eid ul Adha, and then Diwali, Thanksgiving and so on.

Eid is one of my most favorite holidays and I still get excited about the festivities like a small girl. For me applying henna/mehendi is also an integral part of the festivities. Though I never cooked pumpkin halva for Eid before, the orange pumpkin color with the dark green background resembles the color of henna, and I love it. Hope you do too.

This blog has a new home now! You can still find the recipe here.
