Saffron Potato Halwa

Yes you read it right!!! "A potato halwa". It is as scrumptious and amazing as it looks. You can't guess until you make one for yourself. Potato is so universal and found in the entire household. There are about five thousand potato varieties worldwide. Potatoes are prepared in many ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, with seasonings or without. The only requirement involves cooking to swell the starch granules.


Potato:                     3-4 medium
Sugar:                      1 cup      
Cream:                     2 tablespoon
Cardamom:               1 teaspoon
Saffron:                     1/2 teaspoon soaked in 2 tsp milk
Clarified Butter:         3-4 tablespoon  
Cashew nut

1) Peel the potato and grate it. Soak all the grated potato in water and wash to take out the starch. Strain and keep aside.
2) Heat clarified butter in a pan and add grated potato.
3) Stir till its dry and golden yellow in color.
4) Add saffron soaked milk, cream and sugar.
5) Mix all the finely chopped dry fruit.
6) Keep stirring till dry and bright.
7) Serve hot or cold and relish this unusual halwa.
