Mash the papaya pieces with a fork. Heat a tawa and heat 1
tbsp of ghee.
Add the papaya pieces and begin to mash and cook on low fire.
Once the papaya has begun to dry up slightly, add the sugar a
little at a time. Also add spoons of milk â€“ a little at a time
so that the milk is nicely soaked into the papaya paste.
Add the almond powder, sugar, milk and ghee till all of
this is mixed well into the papaya.
Stir and cook till a fine aroma arises.
Once your papaya halwa is ready, place on chikki or pedha or
just place on individual serving bowl and serve garnished with
almonds or pistachios and serve as a dessert.
You could place the halwa on sweet toasts or in capanes, the
ideas can vary.
