Papaya Halwa | Halwa Recipes

     Eventhough papaya is a very very healthy fruit, many people hate it and does not like to have it. Papaya halwa is a very good way to make them have papaya. The good thing is the papaya taste comes down and halwa taste nominates.  My kid and family loved it and its a must try dish.
