  • Fresh alphonso mangoes - 2
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Ghee - 2 tablespoons
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon


Step 1

Wash and remove the pulp out of the mangoes. Grind the mango pulp in a mixer into a fine paste.

Step 2

Heat a pan. Add 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add mango pulp and sugar and mix well.

Step 3

Cook on a low flame for 20 to 25 minutes stirring in between.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Add cardamom powder and remove from the heat.

Step 6

Grease a plate with ghee. Pour the mango halwa in the plate and allow it to set for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Step 7

Serve mango halwa warm or cold. Either way it tastes good.

Step 8

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.
