Alu Halwa

My mom used to make this whenever she fasted and we used to eagerly wait to eat it. This has been one of my favorite sweets. Although you can never eat a lot since its all fatty stuff but once in a while, its nice.


4 potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
6 tsp ghee
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar


1. Heat ghee in a pan and fry mashed poatatoes on low-medium heat till golden brown. A nice aroma exudes when its done.

2. Add boiling water and sugar.

3. Fry again till ghee separates.

4. Serve with something salty. We normally had salted peanuts with it.
