Aalo Ka Halwa / Potato Halwa/ Potato pudding

Potato is widely eaten food across the globe. For someone who is fasting Potato offers good Carohydrates, and Potassiam. I am firm believer that one who is fasting does not need to eat boring usual Potato stuff, rather I like offering delicious food. Though I made this Potato Halwa (आलू हलवा / Aalo Halwa) during fast, by all means one can eat anytime, and must not restrict to fasting season.

Aaloo ka halwa or potato pudding is a dessert mostly eaten in fasts and hails from Marwari cuisine. This is really an easy to make sweet dish which one can make in jiffy with minimum ingredients from pantry.

Key notes:

  • Always cook this on low to medium flame otherwise potatoes will turn brown of cooked on high heat.
  • As potatoes are little sweet on their own, you can adjust amount of sugar according to your taste.
  •  You can use any nuts of your choice other than cashews or raisins.
