Alu Burfi? I was very skeptical when I heard this recipe from my cousin. She then convinced me that it would be a very good one! It sure turned out to be very interesting and mouth watering one at that! The taste of potatoes was totally disguised and it is extremely difficult even for a trained taster (can I say?) to detect its presence. I think the mawa/milk powder in this recipe can be substituted with koya/kova (unsweeteend) or milk powder. Let me know if anyone tries it out.
Alu Burfi

Ingredients - 

Potatoes /Alu Boiled and Mashed 3 cups
Coconut Grated (Fresh/Frozen) 12 oz pkt (approx 3 cups)
Sugar 5 cups
Mawa/Milk Powder 2 cups
Cardamom Powder 1 tsp
Alu Burfi

Method Of Preparation - 

Mix the mashed potatoes, grated coconut and sugar in a heavy bottomed pan. (I used a non stick pan)

Under medium flame, heat the pan and keep stirring occasionally so it doesn't get burnt. After about 30 min, add the mawa/milk powder and mix well. 

Continue stirring until the whole thing becomes a single mass. It took me about 50 min.

Prepare a greased plate (I used a cookie tray lined with parchment paper) and pour the mixture and level it with a greased rolling pin (I used a greased flat bottomed plate).

Make dents in the leveled mixture in whichever shape desired. (I made squares as shown in the picture above.) Let it cool for an hour or so and then break into pieces as marked and store in an air tight container!
