Sakarkand Ka Kheer (sweet Potato Pudding)
My kiddo adores sweet potato while I can't stand this vegetable. Back home my folks usually steam and have it with some grated coconut. So I figured out I need to dress the sweet potatoes in different form so that I don't bore my kiddo and then began a spree for sweet potato recipes. We did pancakes, custard, finger chips all of which are not Indian recipes. But this last one I did was a kheer or Indian style pudding. It has sugar, sweet potato, milk, cardamom powder and a dash of saffron. I tried nuts once but the kiddo just spat it out but I am adding it in the ingredient list because it can be added for adults. Now this is one dish with sweet potato I can have. In fact we toned down the sugar and had it like porridge last week because I had a surplus of sweet potatoes at home. I think flavoured sweet potatoes as in adding rose essence, cardamom powder; saffron or vanilla essence enhances the flavour.
