Sweet potatoes (peeled and grated)- 1 cup
Khoya - 1cup

Assorted Dry fruits (Almonds, Raisins, Cashew nuts )
Sugar-2 cup
In a heavy bottomed pan heat ghee, add grated pumpkin and sweet potatoes, sauté on medium flame till water evaporates.
Add sugar (if using condensed milk reduce quantity of sugar becsuse condensed milk is aleady sweetened) and khoya. Keep stirring frequently on medium flame, let all the liquid evaporate and halwa start leaving the edges of pan.
Add saffron and mix well. Serve warm garnished with dry fruits.
If khoya is not available condensed milk can be used but in that case quantity of sugar has to be reduced as condensed milk is already very sweet itself .
