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.

Add cashewnuts.

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..
