    Its very interesting you asked for Mango halwa :) people don't make it very often. A very simple way would be to replace the egg in this recipe with 1 fully ripe mango. If you want a more typical recipe, then add a step "fry 2 cup semolina in ghee for 15 minutes" before 'step 2' above, and skip the 'add ghee' from Step 4. And of course replace egg with 1 mango.

    I love how foods mix through so many cultures. Persians have halva too but it's not at all like this but we also have a dessert called sholeh-zard (literally meaning soft yellow) which is made very much like your recipe. I'm dying to make this and see how it compares, thanks!
