As the summer season has already started ,the fruit market is flooded with all types of juicy stone fruits.In India we have so many varieties of mangoes to enjoy during hot summer seasons.
Mangoes are used to make drinks, desserts, chutnies , curries and pickles. I often make Sooji Halwa and in winter the popular Gajar halwa is made and in summers when bottle gourd is very easily and reasonably available then Lauki ka Halwa is made and relished .
But I have never tried making halwa with mangoes so this season I tried adding mangoes in my sooji halwa and it tastes great! It has a prominent flavor of ripe mangoes and now this quick easy and delicious Mango halwa will be a regular in my kitchen .
