If you have a papaya that is not sweet and tasteless do not throw it...,,try out this delicious halwa. I couldn't believe it would come out so tasty. Everyone enjoyed it.

Papaya ............. 1 large (ripe)
Sugar .............. 3/4 cup (adjust according to the sweetness of papaya)
Green cardamoms ... 4-5
Cashew nuts ............ handful
Desi ghee or oil ...... 4-5 tbsps
Milk powder ......... 2 tbsps (you can also use mawa / khoya instead)


Peel the papaya and cut into pieces.

Grind in coarsely in a chopper.

Heat ghee or oil in a pan. Add the crushed cardamoms

Tip in the papaya puree and saute on medium flame. Continue to stir it until it is cooked and the oil starts separating. It takes about 20 minutes.

Stir in the sugar and continue to stir.

cook until the water from the sugar is completely dry stirring in between.

Now add the milk powder.

Stir immediately to avoid lumps.

Fry the cashew nuts in a spoonful of ghee.

Add few to the halwa and save some for garnishing.

Garnish and serve hot or cold.
