About Papaya Halwa or Papita ka Halwa Recipe
PAPAYA - a vegetable when used before ripening, and a fruit once ripen ;) . I always prefer to eat fruits because we can be much benefited by all the goodness that nature offers through these amazing sources. Normally we eat chopped papaya as it is or use them in fruit chat, fruit salad etc. I never tried my hand in making halwa using ripe papaya before. The process and the consistency of the halwa is similar to any other halwa. But yes, this papaya halwa is healthy version of halwa. Because this halwa mainly needs very ripe papaya as the main ingredient which is naturally already sweet. So addition of sugar is less which results in a healthy as well as low calorie dessert. If very ripe papaya or sweetened papaya is not available, then sugar content in the halwa has to be a bit high. Preferably grated papaya goes very well for this halwa as it can easily cook and no need of mashing for smoothness of the halwa. So you need to try this dessert to see how papayas can be made into such a delicious as well as healthy dessert.
