Sweet Potato Halwa

Ingredients


  • 4-5 medium sweet potato

  • 2 mangoes

  • 1.5 cups ghee

  • 1/3 cup sooji

  • 1.5 cups sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

  • Dry fruits (cashews, rasins and almonds)

  • 1 tablespoon ghee for dry fruits tempering


 

Instructions

Making halwa


  1. Pressure cook sweet potatoes for 4-5 whistles and mash once cooled

  2. Blend 1 mango pulp and dice the other mango. It gives a nice chunk in the dish.

  3. Add half cup ghee in a pan. Add mashed sweet potato, mango pulp and the diced mango.

  4. Mix everything and keep stirring until the raw smell goes from mango.

  5. Add 1.5 cups sugar and mix.

  6. Add rest of the ghee (1cup) and keep stirring.

  7. Add sooji and stir. Sooji gives the binding to the halwa.

  8. Keep stirring so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Ghee starts to separate and that's the cue that the halwa is cooked properly.

  9. Now add 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder and mix.

  10. In another pan/tempering pan, add 1 tablespoon ghee and heat.

  11. Add all the dry fruits and let it fry in the ghee for 2 mins.

  12. Add the dry fruits tempering to the halwa and mix well.

  13. Mango-sweet potato halwa is ready to be served!
