Aloo ka Halwa

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share the recipe of aloo ka halwa. This is a very simple desert which was mostly made on vrat days (fasting days) as it do not have any kind of flour in it.It is a mandatory sweet dish on the festival of Shiv Ratri. Aloo ka Halwa was made only twice or thrice in the whole year so during my childhood days I used to look forward to the festivals on which this was made and was super excited from the morning itself  and told my granny to make little extra for me and she would happily oblige.Do try this friends and let me know how you like.

Servings: 2

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 big sized potato boiled and peeled
  • 4 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 6 tbsp sugar (you can add more if you want more sweet)
  • Few almonds for garnishing (optional)

Procedure:

Aloo ka Halwa 1

Boil and peel two big size potatoes.

Mash the potatoes very nicely,there should not be any lumps.It should be smooth in texture.

When ghee is hot enough,add mashed potatoes in it

and mix it nicely with the ghee.Keep the gas on medium heat.

Keep stirring it continuously otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the kadhai and burn.The above picture shows different stages of halwa while roasting. Keep gas on medium heat only.I takes around 15-20 minutes to roast completely.

When the ghee will start coming out from the sides and the potatoes starts turning little brownish then it means it is roasted completely.It will look like the picture shown above.

Now add sugar in it and stir nicely.When sugar has dissolved and mixed nicely with the potatoes then switch off the gas immediately. Aloo halwa is ready.
