Sweet Potato Halwa, Ratalyacha God Halwa

Ratalyacha God Halwa

This method of making halwa is different from the Kees or Ratalyacha sheera ( recipe coming)that I make regularly and I quite liked the taste of this Halwa the added advantage is it is faster.

Sweet potato is a healthy tuber and you should include it in your diet. I had explored the health benefits of sweet potato in the past you can look it up here. These are what I have tried

This recipe is adapted from here.

As for the disclaimers

Now I can safely say you will love this recipe that Sharmila also called Sakkaraivalli Kizhangu Halwa.

    Somehow I haven’t been able to fall in love with sweet potatoes despite the health benefits… and now because of the season, it’s all over in every supermarket… hmm… maybe this halwa would be a good reason to start off… 😉 It is bad that you didn’t offer it to your FIL… 😛

    Yumm, it’s really sweet dish, sweet potato, sugar and condensed milk. I too have a sweet tooth(infact whole set) but can’t take so much risk for my health. How I wish I had a chance to grab this bowl.

      You can avoid the condensed milk and make a small minuscule portion.

    I love this totally! I am a big sheera fan, be it Kesari as we southies make or the basic semolina sheera I am a big fan. Sweet potato is super good for health and this is my snack early morning before i head for a walk as it keeps me energetic. Without using any semolina, you have achieved the perfect texture of the halwa, super! Kids these days are so lost in their candies, they miss out on all these yum snacks.
