Mango halwa recipeTweet
Mango halwa is a very delicious sweet made with fresh mangoes, ghee and sugar and garnished with nuts. It tastes best with alphonso mangoes. Mango halwa is a cherished Indian sweet and with flavour of fresh mangoes is a real treat for mango lovers.
- Fresh alphonso mangoes - 2
- Sugar - 1/2 cup
- Ghee - 2 tablespoons
- Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Wash and remove the pulp out of the mangoes. Grind the mango pulp in a mixer into a fine paste.
Heat a pan. Add 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add mango pulp and sugar and mix well.
Cook on a low flame for 20 to 25 minutes stirring in between.
Once the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and becomes little thick, it means that the halwa is ready. There will be a slight change in the colour.
Add cardamom powder and remove from the heat.
Grease a plate with ghee. Pour the mango halwa in the plate and allow it to set for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Serve mango halwa warm or cold. Either way it tastes good.
Note : If the mangoes are very sweet, you can reduce the quantity of sugar. No food colour is required to be added as mango has a natural orange colour.
