Mango Halwa

It’s hard to stay away from mangoes during this time of the year, and having a sweet tooth, I couldn’t help but make Mango Halwa. This Halwa is not at all a guilty pleasure. It contains Palm sugar (Jaggery) which has less calories compare to white sugar (Brown sugar can also be used instead).


Mango Halwa:

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Dessert


Mango Puree – 2 cups

Ghee – 2 tbsp

Palm Sugar – 1/4 cup

Raisins – as needed

Cashew – for garnish


  • In a heavy bottomed pan, add ghee and saute raisins for 30 seconds. In medium flame, add mango puree and keep stirring for 5 min. Add jaggery and keep stirring. Cook for 15 – 20 mins till it thickens and approaches halwa consistency



  • The key is to switch off before it reaches halwa consistency, as the halwa will thicken a bit after it is switched off. Garnish with cashews

    Mango halwa…why didn’t I think about it! I had a box of mangoes and ate them in a hurry as they were all ripe at the same time. I am sure it tastes excellent!
