Jackfruit halwa, also known as "Kathal ka Halwa," is a sweet and indulgent dessert made from ripe jackfruit. Jackfruit is a tropical fruit with a distinctive sweet aroma and a unique taste that can range from mild to intense, depending on its ripeness. When used in desserts like halwa, jackfruit lends its naturally sweet flavor and rich texture to create a delightful treat.

It is the time of Jackfruit and for all the halwa lovers I am introducing Jackfruit halwa. I will make it a bit tasty, this will be really delicious for all the sweet tooth out there. Its a long and time consuming process for a sweet, but worth the hard work. As jackfruit is a seasonal fruit, my mother prepares in bulk and uses for the off seasons.

You can serve jackfruit halwa warm or at room temperature. It's a delightful dessert that's enjoyed for its unique jackfruit flavor and the richness of ghee and nuts.

Jackfruit halwa is a specialty in regions where jackfruit is abundant, and it offers a sweet twist on the natural flavors of the fruit. It's a great way to celebrate the tropical delight of jackfruit in a traditional Indian dessert.
