Jackfruit Halwa | பலாப்பழ அல்வா | Microwave Method

Jackfruit halwa is a simple, drool-worthy and tastes heavenly. I learnt this recipe(stove-top method) from my school friend Sukanya. I slightly modified it for quick microwave version.

Ingredients :-
 Jackfruit        2 cups
 Sugar   ¾ cup
 Ghee    5 tbsp

Method :- 
1). Deseed the Jackfruit, chop into chunks. Pulse it in a mixer or food processor (Don't add water) and keep aside. Take medium sized microwave safe bowl, add a tablespoon of ghee and microwave for 2minutes.

2). Add the pulsed pulp and set the microwave high for 10minutes. Add ghee and stir in-between for every 2-3minutes.
3). When the raw smell leaves, add sugar and microwave for 5more minutes. 
4). The ghee starts to seperate out from the halwa when it is done. Let it rest in the microwave for 5more minutes. 
5). Grease the plate and pour the halwa mixture and smoothen the top surface with a spoon /spatula.When the Jackfruit halwa cools, cut into pieces or serve it assuch.
Halwa is ready !! Relish the delicious Jackfruit Halwa.

Note :-
# The more ghee you add, the tastier the halwa will be.
# You can very well garnish the halwa with nuts.
# Adding cardamom powder is optional.
