Hello!!! I recently joined a group Recipe Swap Challenge where the members are wonderful bloggers. We are paired one blogger and we have have to cook any recipe from their blog. I was paired with Archana who blogs at
https://themadscientistskitchen.com/ . I had short listed many recipes but settled to make Sweet Potato Halwa / Ratalyacha God Halwa.Glad I tried this recipe. I did tweak in a little as i did not have condensed Milk.You can read original recipe here.
Recipe for Sweet Potato Halwa / Ratalyacha God Halwa : Ingredients: 1 Big Sweet Potatao 2 Tsp Brown Sugar 2 Tbsp Ghee A generous pinch of Cardamom Powder / Elaichi Powder 1 Tbsp Milk 8 Raisins 4 Almonds Chopped Few Strands of Saffron Method: Pressure cook the sweet potato upto 2 whistles. Allow it to cool .Peel the skin once it reaches room temperature.Mash the sweet potato and ensure it is lump free. Soak Saffron in milk and set aside. Heat a wide bottom pan. Add ghee and fry the almonds and raisins and keep it aside.In the same wok add the mashed sweet potato to the remaining ghee and allow it to cook for about 5 mins on low flame. Now add sugar and saffron soaked milk and cook it on low flame.The gooey halwa will start to thicken as the ghee leaves the sides of the pan. Garnish with raisins and almonds roasted earlier. Switch off the flame . Serve hot and Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I’ve never tried making halwa with sweet potato. This looks so delicious and inviting! I’m sure the sweetness of the sweet potato reduces the amount of sugar you need to put in the halwa – a great idea!

  2. dunno if my earlier comment went thru…

    Sweet potato halwa with brown sugar makes it not just healthy but also gluten free ! my kids would love to eat this…

  3. I’ve never had sweet potato before but after reading this I think I’m going to have to give it a try! Such a wonderful dish! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  4. Used sweet potato in kheer but never made sweet potato halwa. This halwa looks super yummy. Excellent share Preethi. Waiting for next sweet potato season to try it. Lovely share.

  5. Wow! You make it sound so exotic n amazing. You sure this is my recipe?
    Jokes apart Preethi thanks for trying this delicious halwa. I can’t claim it is my favourite as I love sweets of any kind but this sweet potato halwa is special.
