MANGO RAVA HALBAI / MANGO RAVA BURFI RECIPE

Hmm.. It’s been quiet some time that i posted an Indian sweet here. So today i have for you all a very traditional dessert of Karnataka made using Mango and semolina – ” Mango Rava Halbai ” . I know many of you would find it difficult to connect to the name . For easy understanding , we can call this dish a close cousin of  Mango flavored Rava Kesari / Rava Barfi . But unlike kesari bath , rava halbai is made using jaggery and also usage of ghee is less in this dish when compared to kesari bath . Addition of coconut makes Rava halbai soft , jaggery gives nice taste and mango makes it aromatic with incredible flavors . Above all it’s quiet easy and quick to make too…

    HI Smitha , i Havent added any color in this recipe. the yellow color of the halwa is purely from mango . If you see closely , my initial pics were yellow. but later they are white . This blame on my poor kitchen lighting and my mobile camera. Sorry fr the confusion
