Papaya Halwa ( Come on - Lets Cook Buddies) Entry 14

Here i am with another interesting and healthy entry for my event "Come on - Lets cook buddies" which is shared  by +Aishwarya Srinivasan . Lets see what is that recipe which aishwaraya has got for us today.


It is safe to eat Papaya during Pregnancy, as long as it is Ripe. A Well-ripened papaya is full of Vitamins and  Nutrients. Papaya helps to prevent and control constipation and heartburn. For these reasons, many  doctors recommend that pregnant women eat moderate amounts of ripe papaya. However, if u eat Unripe papaya, it is not safe. An unripe or semi-ripe papaya is rich in a substance called latex that leads to Miscarriage.

Again, this is also a very quick and easy recipe.

Today  aishwaraya has some cooking tips to share with us . Lets see whats that useful cooking tip .  Over to aishwarya :)

 Blend portions of ripe papaya with milk and honey. This mixture is considered a rich source of nutrients for pregnant and nursing mums. 


Well Ripened Papaya Puree - 2 Cups (Not diluted puree)
White Sugar - 1/2 cup ( Increase the amount amt to your taste)
Cardamon powder - 1/4 tsp.
Ghee - 1 tbsp.
Nuts for garnishing.

Method of Preparation
  • Heat the tawa, add ghee to it.
  •  Once the ghee becomes hot, Add Papaya puree and Sugar to it.
  • Mix it till the sugar dissolves and do check the taste. (If u want to add more sugar, go ahead and add it. But 1/2 cup tastes good for me). Add Cardamon pwd.
  •  Uncover and cook till it reaches halwa consistency.
  • Garnish it and Serve hot or cold. 

If the mixture becomes very thick, make it as halwa pieces.
