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 is:Raw mango has a cooling effect on the body..
1 big raw mango or two medium sized mangoes(peeled n ground in a blender without water)
to make 2 cups of the pulp.
a pinch of cardamon powder
Heat half of the ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel,and add the mango pulp and cook for 5 mins.Mix cornflour and the water with your desired color separately in a bowl without any lumps,and add to the mango-ghee mixture and keep stirring till it thickens,then add the sugar,cardamon powder.cook,when it statrs to thicken add rest of the ghee and keep stirring till u see the halwa leaving the sides of the pan.add cashew.Pour into a greased plate and cut when cool.
Variation.you could substitute half cup of mango pulp to half cup of finely ground almonds…this enriches the taste..
