Sweet Potato Kheer

A very different kind of desert. This desert can be made one day before and kept in the fridge. Its taste even better.... This is my contri for Shama's Event of Kheer

Serves 6
2 Big size sweet potatoes (grated)
1 litre Milk
2 tbsp ghee
2 cups sugar (if you want less sweet then take sugar accordingly) (if the grated sweet potato is about 2 cups then 1 cup sugar will do)
1 tsp Cardamom powder
few pieces of cashew and pista.

1. Heat ghee in a pan and add sweet potato to it. Keep frying the potato till it becomes soft.
2. Then add milk and let it boil with the potato. Let it boil till the potato gets completely cooked and milk thickens.
3. Then add sugar and let it boil again till the sugar dissolves. Keep stirring frequently.
4. Let it boil till it is of the desired consistency. Then remove from the fire and add cardamom powder and nuts.
5. Serve hot or cold. (I liked it a bit warm)

Note: Sugar can be substituted with Jaggery. It gives a different taste and colour to the kheer.
