Papaya Halwa

I know we all are really "happily" busy today, after all, it's Diwali Time!!! So here is a quick post. This papaya halwa that I prepared for my family and friends, tastes soooo good. It is more or less tastes like gajar ka halwa (halwa) but a little different and easier to make. So go fast and impress your guests and celebrate cooking the natural way!!

                                           A VERY HAPPY DIWALI TO YOU ALL!!!

You need
1 kg ripen papaya (peeled and grated)
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup clarified butter (ghee)
1 litre milk
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
few almonds (crushed)


1. In a heavy bottom pan, boil milk and keep stirring till thickens. Keep aside. Soak cashews in hot water for 15 minutes.

2. In another pan, heat ghee and fry almonds till lightly brown.

3. Put the papaya and sugar and cook for 5 minutes. Meanwhile grind cashews into a paste.

4. Now add cashew paste, cardamom powder and thickened milk.

5. Garnish with almonds. Serve hot and Enjoy!!

Note:- You can use store-bought condensed milk also. If using, adjust the sugar accordingly or completely omit sugar.
