Potato Sweet Mixture - Ingredients
Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Makes : 1 cup Recipe Category: Snack | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian
Potato - 3 medium sized Cashews - 6 whole Raisins - 10 Powdered Sugar - 2 tbsp Cardamom powder - a pinch(optional) Salt - for taste Oil - for deep frying
Peel off the skin of potatoes.Grate it using a grater in batches and fry it in preheated oil.Use a big holed grater.
Fry till golden , don't let it brown it.Drain in tissue paper.Likewise grate and deep fry the rest of the potatoes too.Set aside.
Then fry raisins till golden, then fry cashews till golden brown.Collect it in a bowl and set aside.
Now take fried potato mixture in a bowl, add salt and powdered sugar.
Add cardamom powder,nuts,raisins and give a quick mix.
Serve with tea.
Always grate in small batches and at once fry in oil else the color of the potatoes will change.
Use a big hole grater for best results.If you use a smaller one, while frying it gets browned easily.
Adding salt is optional but I recommend adding it.
