Papaya Halwa

Ripe Papaya - 3 cups, chopped into cubes
Sugar - 1 1/2 cups (adjust according to your taste)
Milk - 1 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cashew Nuts - 2 tbspns
Raisins - 1 tbpsn
Ghee - 2 tbspns

In a pan add the milk and let it boils. In a separate fry the cashews and raisins in a tbspn of ghee and keep it aside.
Mix the papaya cubes and sugar in a non stick pan and cook well (approximately 15 minutes). Now mash the papaya sugar mixture well with the back of the ladle. Keep stirring the mixture and add more sugar if needed. Now add the boiled milk in the papaya sugar mixture and keep stirring for about 25-35 minutes until it forms a sticky halwa consistency and starts to leave the sides of the pan. The milk and water content completely evaporates and looks glossy.
At this stage add a tbspn of ghee and mix well and add the cardamom powder. Add the fried cashews and raisins to the halwa.  Switch off the stove. Grease a plate and transfer the halwa to the plate.
