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 :
1 Big Sweet Potatao
2 Tsp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Ghee
A generous pinch of Cardamom Powder / Elaichi Powder
1 Tbsp Milk
4 Almonds Chopped
Few Strands of Saffron
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
