This is one of the quickest and easiest halwa I ever made using boiled and mashed Sweet potatoes , cardamom and saffron.
2 medium to large sweet potatoes
Sugar as required as it depends upon the sweetness of Shakarkandi
ghee around 4 tbsp ( you can even use oil to make it Vegan )
1tsp cardamom powder
saffron 4-5 threads
Mixed dried fruits 2 tbs ( i just used the cashews & Raisins )
Boil the sweet potatoes .
When they become warm, peel and mash them.
Heat ghee in a kadai or pan.
First fry the cashews till golden brown . keep aside.
Now in the same ghee, add the mashed sweet potatoes.
Stir well and saute for 3-4 mins.
add sugar and saute for 4-5 mins.
Now add crushed cardamom and stir for a min
Now add saffron and stir again .
keep on stirring till ghee starts to leave the sides of halwa. approx 10-minutes on a low to medium flame.
Add the fried cashew nuts , dried fruits and stir again.
serve sweet potato halwa warm .
