Watermelon Halwa / Dharboosani Halwa

Sweeet , Sweet, and sweeet!!

This is a different halwa compared to all the carrot, beetroot , pumpkin halwas.. The taste is similar to pumpkin halwa as the melon is of the same family .. Try the halwa and experience the heavenly feel.


Watermelon - half  of the fruit ( I used it as pieces , If you want to grind and use the pulp for halwa, you can very well use it)
Condensed milk - 5 tsp ( If no condensed milk use 5 tsp sugar and little milk)
Cashews - few to garnish


  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel, fry the cashews and keep it aside.
  • Add the cut watermelon pieces and fry for 2 mins. Close it and cook for 5 mins till the melon is boiled. 

  • Add the condensed milk to the fruit.Allow it to boil till the water from the fruit is totally absorbed.
  • Stir well occasionally from over burning.

  • Allow it to cook till it leaves the sides of the vessel, add ghee and mix well.the halwa leaves the sides and absorbs the ghee.
  • Finally add the fried nuts.
