Microwave Mango Halwa



This mango halwa is so easy to make and taste delicious. I got the recipe from Mythree's Blog..

Ingredients:

Sweetened mango pulp - 1 can (850 gms) I used Shamiana kasar mango pulp sweetened

Sugar - 1 cup

Ghee / clarified butter - half cup

Cardamom powder - half teaspoon

Saffron - few strands ( a pinch )

Method:

In a wide bottomed microwave safe ( pyrex glass ware preferably) container add one can of mango pulp.

Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add sugar and stir well ,microwave high for 5 minutes.

Add the cardamom powder and saffron . Cook for 20 minutes, stirring once every 5 minutes.

Add ghee and stir in until even distribution. Adding more ghee is optional.

Microwave on high for 8 to 10 minutes and do not forget to give it a stir every 4 or 5 minutes.

After the halwa consistency is reached, give a quick stir and let it sit for 5 minutes. If the halwa consistency is not reached, microwave again for 4 to 5 minutes.
Garnish with Cashew.
