Ratalyacha Sheera (Sweet Potato Halwa)

  • Boiled & Mashed Ratale (Sweet Potato/Yam): 1 Cup
  • Ghee: 1/2 tbsp
  • Sugar: 1/2 Cup (or More)
  • Chopped Nuts & Raisins
  • Cardamom Powder: 1/2 tsp


  1. Heat ghee in a kadhai. Fry nuts till they become golden brown. Then add raisins & fry for few seconds.
  2. Then add mashed sweet potatoes & mix well. Cook till ghee starts seperating corners of kadhai.
  3. Add sugar & cardamom powder. Mix well and cook for 5 more minutes. Your sweet potato halwa is ready to eat.

Note: If you want you can add milk to this halwa. With same steps you can also make Potato Halwa.

I would like to send this simple recipe to Varsha's Recipes For Rest Of Us: Dessert event. This event is started by Ramki of One Page Cookbook.

With this Sweet Dish I would like to wish all of you Happy Makar Sankranti !!

Til Gul Ghya ..God God Bola !!
