Cucumber Halwa Recipe
Cucumber Halwa is an interesting healthy dessert. It is prepared with cucumber, and low fat milk. Sugar can be added for sweetness, but here I have used sugar supplement. It tastes really good can can be taken by sweet lovers, who have restrictions in diet. Cardamom has been used to enhance flavor. It has been garnished with little raisins.
