Chikoo, Nariyal aur Khus Khus Halwa - Sapodilla,Coconut and Poppy seeds Dessert

Chikoo or Sapodilla or Sappota is easily available in India, now even in the UK we get it too. Chikoo halwa is very easy to prepare and takes very less time too. It is something different and tasty. It takes less sugar too as the chikoo already has a lot of natural sugar.

You will need :-
  • 6 medium size ripe Sapodilla ( chikoo )
  • 50 g grated coconut ( Nariyal )
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds ( khus khus )
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar ( depends how sweet is your fruit )
  • Almonds for garnishing

Wash, peel and mash chikoo in food processor. Make sure you leave pips out. Now you will have chikoo pulp.
Heat ghee in heavy based kadai and add chikoo pulp.
Cook for 2-3 minutes and add grated coconut.
Keep stirring for another 3-4 minutes and add sugar.
Now add khus khus seeds and mix every thing.
Cook on a low heat, stirring continuously till ghee separates and the mixture gets the halwa consistency.
Turn the heat off.
Serve in a bowl and garnish with almonds and serve at room temperature.
