Shakarkand(sweet potato) ki mithai


1. Sweet potato - 250 gms(boiled and mashed)
2. Maida - 100gms
3. Paneer - 1 cup(crumbled)
4. Sugar- 1/4 cup
5. Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
6. Sugar syrup- 1 cup( 1 thread consistency, I have added orange food colour too)
7. Refined oil for deep frying


Heat a pan and add paneer and sugar into it. Cook in low flame till all the moisture evaporates. Allow this mixture to cool. In a mixing bowl add sweet potato,maida,fennel seeds,pinch of salt and make a tight dough.Rub some maida in your palms,take a portion from the dough,make an oval shape and fill some planner mixture inside. Cover the mixture properly, repeat till you have used all of them. It will make around 6 pieces approximately. Now heat oil in a frying pan and deep fry until golden brown.Dip them in warm sugar syrup for 2 to 3 mins and take them out. Serve cold and pour some syrup while serving.

Note - While boiling the sweet potato , take them out of the water immediately, to prevent them from becoming sticky.Chopped dry fruits can also be used for garnishing.
