The question of what to do with the leftover
mangoes ,made me try this sweet dish,which
turned out to be a hit to the halwa list…
Eye on health : Raw mango has a cooling effect
on the body..
1 big raw mango or two medium sized
mangoes(peeled and ground in a blender
without water)to make 2 cups of the pulp.
2-2.5 cups sugar
1/2 cup corn flour
1/4-1/2 cup ghee
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cashewnuts
a pinch of cardamon powder
Heat half of the ghee in a heavy bottomed
vessel,and add the mango pulp .
Cook for 5 minutes.
Mix cornflour and the water with desired color
separately in a bowl.
Add to the mango-ghee mixture .
Keep stirring till it thickens,and add the sugar
cardamon powder and cook.
When it starts to thicken ,add rest of the ghee
and keep stirring till you see the mixture
leaving the sides of the pan.
Pour into a greased plate and cut when cool.
Variation:You could substitute half cup mango
pulp to half cup of finely ground almonds…this
enriches the taste..
