Papaya Halwa

When i started thinking of papaya recipes halwa came into my mind.I used ripe papaya here....I dropped my plan of adding color powder since it ended up with this nice color.Here we go with this colorful recipe...



INGREDIENTS:

Ripe papaya(medium size) - 1
Sugar - 2 cup
Ghee - 4-5 tsp
cashew - 10 nos
cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
milk - 1 cup

METHOD:

Make cashew into small pieces. Fry the cashews in ghee and keep aside.Boil the milk for 15-20 minitues in medium heat until gets thick.Heat one tbsp ghee in a pan, add the papaya pulps and fry till the smell vanishes.Cook it in medium heat and stir occasionally for 5 minutes.Now add the milk and boil it until milk evaporates,then add the sugar and stir continuously in low heat.Now add the remaining ghee and stir on low heat till the mixture collects in a soft ball or the ghee oozes out.Serve with decorated cashews and cardamon powder.
