Mango Halwa

Since mango season is on, one of my friends called me and shared this recipe. My friend said I should try it and share it on the blog too. A big thank you to my lovely friend for this luscious recipe. It is an ultimate dessert and should be enjoyed before mango season is gone. The flavor of mango and kesar (saffron) compliment each other so well.

Sugar in the ingredients list is kept from 1/4 – 1/2 cup, as it depends on how sweet are the mangoes you’re using. So add accordingly.

Also try: Sooji Halwa or Besan Halwa.

How to make Mango Halwa:

  4. Add mango pulp, sugar, cardamom powder and kesar. Stir well
  5. Keep stirring until excess water from mango pulp is absorbed, it’ll take around 4-5 mins
  6. Turn off the flame and let rest for 2-3 mins
  7. Your Mango Halwa is ready. Sprinkle kesar and serve hot.
