Recipe type: Halwa
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • Mango Puree – 2 cups
  • Ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Palm Sugar/Jaggery - 3 tbsp
  • White sugar - 3 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Salt - pinch
  • Raisins - as needed
  • Cashew/almonds - for garnish
Method
  1. In a heavy bottomed pan, add ghee and saute raisins for 30 seconds and transfer it to a plate
  2. In medium flame, add mango puree and keep stirring for 4- 5 min.
  3. Add jaggery, sugar, cardamom powder, salt and keep stirring. Cook for 15 - 20 mins till it thickens and approaches halwa consistency. The key is to switch off before it reaches halwa consistency, as the halwa will thicken a bit after it is switched off. Garnish with roasted almonds/cashews
Notes
1. If you are using frozen mangoes, thaw and grind it
2. Grinding mango is optional
3. Brown/ turbinado sugar can be used instead of jaggery and white sugar
4. Halwa stays good for 3 days if refrigerated
5. Color of the halwa depends on the jaggery and mango vairety
6. Food color can be added
7. Extra ghee/ butter can be added for richness
8. I grinded over ripe mangoes without adding water for mango puree
7. Use ripe/over ripe mangoes for better taste
