This is the first time i had jack fruit halwa which i learnt from my mom and that too preparing myself and was really tasty.I need to tel that i was scared to do because never prepared any sweets before but still wanted to give a try.So after satisfying myself that i can do it, i started preparing and for my surprise i did it in very short time and that too came out to be good.So jack fruit halwa goes like this.
|Jack fruit(chopped)||3 cup|
|Grated coconut||1 1/2 tbsp|
|Ghee(optional)||1 - 2 tsp|
1.Chop the jack fruit to very tiny pieces.
2.Boil the milk and add the chopped jack fruit pieces.
3.Stir the jack fruit now and then by keeping in low flame and close the lid.Close the lid and stir till the entire milk is absorbed.
4.Once the milk is absorbed add the sugar and grated coconut.
5.Now keep on stirring the halwa in medium flame and can see its becoming watery as the sugar will tend to leave water.
6.Now mix without taking hand and should be careful as it may splutter.Should keep on mixing till the sugar is well absorbed.(i.e. if we take the halwa little and put in the plate,sugar and jack fruit should be together.The water in the sugar should not be separate and jack fruit separate.)
7.Once the halwa is done put off the fire and add ghee and mix well.Now the yummy yummy halwa is ready to serve.
1.In case if the jack fruit is too sweet can reduce the sugar according to that.
