Aloo Ka Halwa

Aloo Halwa

Have you ever heard of a halwa made with potato? Yes I am talking about Potato Halwa!
It is one of the desserts normally cooked during festivals like Shravan/Navaratri. During
fast/vrat craving for eating sweet? Then you might like to try this new type of halwa.
!! The Potato Halwa !!

No one can believe that potato halwa can be as much delicious. It is a rich in nutrient sweet
dish prepared from the mix of mashed potatoes, ghee, milk & sugar. Can be an easy dessert recipe for unannounced guests using handy ingredients.

1 tbsp ghee
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbsp cashews chopped & lightly roasted
1/4 tbsp almonds flaked or chopped
