I was waiting for my network to work properly since last so many days,....perhaps due to the peculiar location of our house which lies in some dead frequency zone.....never mind this is also a part of army life .....every station gives us different challenges, and we accept it with grace as assuming something good is hiding behind it. Coming back to posts, one more addition in halwa or Prasad series i.e Aloo ka halwa | potato fudge.. Isn't it interesting, halwa made of our all time favorite evergreen potatoes ??
It always amazed me also but for texture and taste I'll give full marks to this amazing
Preparation. Although lots of ghee is consumed in it but when cooked properly halwa leaves all the fat and you can drain it out easily.. That's what I do :)
Aloo ka halwa is a perfect FOOD FOR FASTING...only three main ingredients make this halwa perfect for Prasad or nevedyam since we are not using any sort of flour in it you can count it in gluten free recipe also. For prasad recipes you can have a look at my other post also like Suji Halwa, Besan Halwa, Atta halwa etc..
Sharing Step by step recipe of Aloo halwa. Although a bit tricky as proper roasting and browning is required but if you follow these steps properly you will achieve good results...
STEP BY STEP RECIPE OF ALOO KA HALWA | POTATO FUDGE
6 Medium size potatoes boiled, peeled and grated
1/2 cup Ghee ( clarified butter)
1 cup of Milk
1 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1 tsp Green cardamom powder
1/2 cup Mixed nuts chopped
Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan. Add grated potatoes and sauté well. The more you sauté the better the halwa tastes.
Stir continuously as it tends to stick to the bottom a little. Add milk and powdered sugar and mix well.
Cook till the sugar dissolves completely and the halwa starts leaving ghee. (At this stage you can drain out ghee in a bowl, can consume it later for some other dish) Add green cardamom powder and nuts and mix well. Serve warm.
