Dear,

you can cook the halwa this way, enjoy:

Ingredients: 2 cucumbers (kumbalangas) 3 cups sugar 2-3 drops rose water 2 pinches of camphor ½ spoon ghee

Method : Peel the skin of 1 cucumber (kumbalanga) and grate it nicely. Peel the skin of another cucumber (kumbalanga), cut it into pieces and grind in mixer as paste. Separate juice from cucumber paste. Add paste to grated cucumber. Add sugar to cucumber juice and heat. Add ghee and grated cucumber slowly to it. Add powdered camphor to this and switch of the flame. After it cools down, keep it for 3-4 hours in the fridge. Sprinkle rose water on it and serve. (source:http://www.tarladalal.com/ViewContr…)
