Aloo ka zarda



The name zarda comes from a persian word zard meaning yellow colour.
Zarda is a sweet rice dish  prepared by adding sugar, dry fruits and flavored with cardamom powder to it. Some people add khoya that makes it more rich in texture.
Some time we also add some orange slice or pineapple slice.
But here I have made aloo ka zarda and used yellow colour. You can use saffron for the colour.
For zarda choose purana aloo (chipsauna)


Presentation Time:- 10 minutes

Cooking Time:- 15 minutes

Serves:-4



Ingredients:-


  • 1kg potato 
  • Granulated sugar 1cup
  • Almond 10
  • Cardamom powder 1tsp
  • Kewda water 1/4tsp
  • Desi ghee 3tbsp

Recipe procedure:-


  • Peel wash and grate the potatoes then put them in chilled water for 10 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile chop the almond. 
  • Now  boil the grated potato in water and add yellow colour. 
  • You need to boil it for 5 minutes only.
  • Allow it to cool down ann drain the excess water .
  • Take a heavy bottom pan( I prefer non stick pan).
  • First grease  the pan with 1tsp ghee then put boiled potato, then almond and sugar, and ghee sprinkle some cardamom powder on it.
  • Repeat the procces till all the potato are finished. 
  • Cover the lid, put the pan on low heat and cook.
  • It will take approximately. 10 to 12 minutes. 
  • Check it once if all the sugar has dissolve in it then its done.

  2. Hema, I've heard of Zarda pulao but making a Zaria with aloo is new to me. Having said that, it definitely is an interesting recipe. Aloo Zarda looks so tempting, love the colour and wish I could taste it.
