Chickoo fresh juice and milk shakes are very common in restaurants and juice shops. Chickoo is a very delicious fruit and Its calorie-rich soft, easily digestible pulp composes of simple sugars like fructose and sucrose that when eaten replenishes energy and revitalizes the body instantly. Indeed, it is a vital source of vitamins, minerals. We can make many dishes with this delicious fruit and one among them is Halwa. Chickoo cooked with milk, sugar and ghee gives a wonderful flavour to the halwa. When I first made this at home, everyone loved it and whenever I get good quality chockoo, I made it a practice now to make this halwa at home. Lets see how to make this scrumptious Chickoo (Cheekoo / Supporta) halwa.

Ingredients:
Chickoo / Supporta5
Milk2 cups* or 1/2 Litre
Sugar1/4 Cup
Cardamom Powder1/4 teaspoon
Cashews5-6
Raisins / Dry grapes1 tablespoon
Almonds10
Ghee2 tablespoon

*1 Cup = 250ml

Method:
  1. Wash and peel the chickoos. Finely chop them into pieces. If they are not ripe, then it is better to make a paste out of the chickoos in the mixer. I have used nice and ripe chickoos so chopping them is enough, they will get mushy when we cook them. 

  2. Heat a pan and add a teaspoon of ghee and fry the cashews, raisins and almonds. Take the roasted cashews, raisins and almonds in a plate. In the same pan, add the chopped chickoo pieces or chickoo paste and cook them for atleast 5 minutes. 

  3. We could see in 5 minutes, the chopped chickoo would have become nicely mushy and cooked. Take this aside in a plate. Wash and keep the pan again in flame. Add milk to the pan and bring it to boil. 

  4. Keep stirring the milk till the milk becomes 1/4th of its quantity. Now add the cooked chickoo and mix well and bring it to boil and keep stirring till they become thick

  5. Then add sugar and stir well. Adding sugar makes the halwa little diluted. Keep stirring until the sugar is combined well and the halwa starts to thicken. Add ghee at this stage and keep stirring the halwa

  6. The ghee will nicely combine with the halwa and the whole halwa mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan without sticking the rolls like a ball. This is the right stage to remove from flame. Add the roasted nuts and mix well

  7. The mouth-watering Chickoo Halwa is now ready to serve!
