Mango halwa

I wanted to try a dish which had mangoes in it.I came across this mango halwa.And the best part is that it was a microwave recipe.

I made it & it turned out a bit sour .Well, because, the mangoes were little kachha or raw.

Ingredients : 2 mangoes ( I used aapus or alphanso or happus mangoes ) , 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tbsp ghee, 1/2 tsp ghee ( for a greased plate dish for spreading the halwa) , 1/4 tsp cardamom powder ( optional ).

Method : Take out the mango pulp from mangoes. Discard the seed as also the skin afters squeezing all the mango pulp sticking to the seed as also the skin.

Add 1/ 4 cup sugar to the mango pulp & puree to an even paste in the mixer. Take this even paste in a microwaveable vessel .Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove the vessel & stir the pulp sugar mixture. Microwave on high for five more minutes.

Add ghee to the sugar pulp mix .Mix nicely.Microwave on high for five minutes.Remove & stir in the ghee sugary pulp mix .Add cardamom powder & microwave for another 4-5 minutes. Remove.The pulp would have become like a gel.If it is still not like gel, If it is not, microwave for some more time like 4-5 minutes after stirring.Spread the pulp on the  greased plate.Let it cool for half an hour or more.Cut into desired shapes & serve.

My father said , the halwa was a bit sour.

Any sweeter variety of mangoes can be used.Even kesar, dussehari, etc.,
