Chop the cabbage, grate the bottle ground, peel and cut both the red and white pumpkins into small pieces. Cook them in 2 Cups of milk along with cashews. When tender and when the milk has been absorbed, remove from the fire, allow to cool and grind in a mixer.
Steam the peaches, destine them and crush them. Fry kishmish and grind on a grind stone. If peaches are not available, use red plums in the same way.
Melt ghee and add red jaggery to it. When it becomes a little soft add the vegetable-fruit mixture. Fry a little and then add crumbled khoya and cardamom powder. Keep on frying, stirring continuously till it becomes one mass. When it starts to leave the sides of the karahi, remove and spread in a deep dish. Decorate with silver foil and nuts. Sprinkle coconut powder on it.
