  • 1 cup mango puree
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 6 broken cashews


  • In a thick bottomed pan kadai, add mango puree cook for 2mins.
  • Then add sugar, keep stirring and cook in low flame.When sugar is added the mixture will turn runny then it will start to become thick.
  • When it starts to thicken and stick add ghee 1 tsp at a time at intervals.Keep stirring and cooking in low flame.
  • Keep cooking when it sticks add ghee and keep stirring. 
  • At one stage it will come together and roll like a ball.Add the rest of the ghee and bring it together. By now you can see the glossy halwa look thats the perfect stage.
  • Fry cashews in 1/2 tsp ghee till they turn golden brown, now add it to the halwa. Give a quick stir and switch off.Serve hot or warm.


  • I haven't added any thickening agent so it takes atleast 20mins to attain halwa consistency.
  • The halwa will thicken after cooling.You can even spread it on a tray and then cut it.But if you are planning to spread on a tray do it when its is still hto only then it will get set neatly.
  • It will look goey while switching off, but will get thick after cooling down.I clicked almost 30mins after the halwa was done.
  • Choose good flavourful juicy mangoes which is a must for this halwa.
