Aloo aur Rajgire/ Ramdana Ka Halwa

Rajgira or Ramdana is one of the  commonly used ingredients in fasting days. Besides Rajgira kheer, Paratha or poori you can also make Rajgira halwa.
Some people use Rajgira flour for halwa but I am using puffed Rajgira along with boiled potato.
Usually it is flavored with cardamom powder but I am flavoring it with camphor in very little amount,  it gives a very nice aroma , I always use camphor to bring flavor in my Prasad panjeeri.
When you use Rajgira flour for halwa it sticks to the pan but puffed Rajgira does not.

Preparation Time :- 5 minutes
Cooking Time :- 15 minutes
Serves :- 4

Ingredients :-

  • Puffed Rajgira 2 cup
  • Boiled potatoes 2
  • Sugar 2tbsp
  • Milk 1/2 cup
  • Ghee 4 tbsp
  • Chopped nuts 2tbsp
  • One piece of camphor /kapoor

For garnishing :-
Chopped nuts

Recipe Procedure :-

  • Peel the skin and grate the potatoes.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, lower the heat and add camphor and quickly add grated potato stir and mix well with camphor.
  • Now increase the heat and fry potato till it becomes light golden.
  • Add puffed Rajgira stir and mix it well cook till the mixture gets golden and crisp.
  • Now add milk again cook the mixture till all the moisture evaporates.
  • Add sugar,  nuts mix and cook for 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Switch off the gas.

Note :-
You can serve it chilled however it tastes better when served hot.
Don't cut down the amount of ghee or else it will stick to the bottom of the pan.
You can also add jaggry instead of sugar.
