Sweet Potato Halva or Burfi or Squares
Shakarkandi ka Halwa
Shakar=sugar, kand=tuber. When fasting, Hindus can not eat anything containing cereals to break the fast. My grandmother, who fasted at least twice a week, used to make this dish with either sweet potatoes or ordinary potatoes. As children, we used to look forward to her fasting, as she always cooked special meals in the evening. She also used to tell us stories specific to each of her fasts. Serves 3-4.
