Papaya Halwa

Happy Sankranti To All Of You!

Papaya Halwa

This is my submission for AFAM… A Fruit A Month event hosted by Naags of


Cubed papaya-1 bowl
Sugar-1/2 bowl
Cardamon powder-a pinch
Chopped pisthachios-1 tablespoon
Ghee-1/4 cup


  1. Choose a fresh but ripe papaya with orange coloured skin and cut it into cubes.
  2. Add the papaya cubes and sugar into a heavy bottomed vessel or pan and start heating them on a medium flame. Papaya has a sweet taste, so it needs less sugar.
  3. Add two tablespoons of ghee and keep stirring. The halwa takes a long time to thicken.
  4. After the halwa thickens, add the cardamom powder and remaining ghee and mix well.
  5. Transfer the halwa into a greased plate and garnish with the chopped pisthachios.
