Potato burfi/Aloo burfi-Raksha Bandhan special

I am posting this sweet today on the eve of Raksha Bandhan/Rakhi.This festival celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters and is celebrated almost in all parts of India.Since potato is an item which is always present in our homes this burfi can be made without much prior preparation.And if you have never heard of this sweet before and are wondering how this would taste then please do try it :)

Ingredients -
freshly grated coconut(2 tbspns)
cardamom/elaichi powder(1 tspn)
ghee for greasing

Method -
Wash and boil the potatoes with the skin and mash them.
Measure this mixture in a bowl.This is important because you need to take the measure of sugar from this.
Take exactly the same quantity of sugar as the mashed potato.
Heat a pan,add the sugar and potato mixture to it.
Stir it continuously till the mixture gets hard.
After its alomst done add coconut and sprinkle elaichi powder.
Grease a plate with ghee.
When the mixture is done transfer it to the greased plate.
Flatten it with a spatula and cut into desired shapes.
Once the mixture hardens it is not possible to cut it hence cut it when hot.
Once cooled potato burfis are ready :-)
You can refrigerate and store the burfis.
