Once a Very Long Time Ago,On One Scorching Summer day, When the Days are Longer and the Nights are shorter I fell in love With the 'King.................Of Fruits'!!!
I thought it was just a Fling which would vanish in the wink of an Eye,but My desire Grew deeper when I saw those Exotic Fruits Rolled into the Market with Variant Colors, sizes and Tastes.....
Yes It is the 'Mangoes' which is in full swing right now and Waiting to be Allured with Bright Yellow color with a Tinge of orange and Green...Starting with the Salads to the Curries these Fruits can be Savored with anything Under the Sun ...
My Today's Pick is Mango Halwa or Mango Burfi
1)1 cup wheat flour
2)Pulp of two ripe mangoes
3)5 to 6 Tbsp sugar(depending upon the sweetness required)
4)4 to Tbsp Ghee or vegetable oil
5)Pinch of Cardamom
7)1 cup milk or water(or enough liquid to form a batter like mixture)
1)Roast the wheat flour until an aroma oozes and the flour turns to light brown color, using 2 Tbsp ghee.
2)Add a cup of milk or water and mix the wheat flour to form a batter like mixture without lumps.
3)Take a kadai,add wheat flour batter,sugar,mango pulp and stir continuously until all the mixture comes together..
4)Add cardamom powder and ghee and keep stirring until all the water evaporates and forms a dough like mixture..Halwa is done when ghee starts leaving the kadai.Cut the flame to off
5)Spread it on a greased plate and cut into desired shape when it comes to room temperature..
Mango Halwa or Mango Burfi is Ready to serve.
1)Mango pulp can be replaced with pineapple,sapota or papaya...It gives a very splendid taste according to the individual fruits flavor...
