This mango halwa recipe is just exactly the way we make halwa. the only addition is of mango pulp. So what you get is a halwa with mango taste, flavors and aroma.

This mango halwa was made my mom when she visited us. Like most Indian women, she does not use measuring spoons or cups for measuring the ingredients. So she gave me approximate measures. I have quantitatively deduced the measurements. Another similar recipe I prepare at times is this Mango kesari.

Here the large variety of Indian mangoes were used. for a halwa, any mango with a good firm texture and flesh can be used. Just don’t use mangoes which are fibrous. Alphonso or Kesar mangoes would also be good.
