Sweet Potato & Sago (Javvarusi) Kheer

Have you ever prepared kheer using cooked sweet potatoes??? if u didnt yet, its not late at all, yeah i tried this gorgeous, yummyilicious kheer with cooked sweet potato and sago pearls..This kheer gets ready very quickly also at the same time this kheer tastes incredibly delicious, i can say that this kheer is one of the best kheer i have never prepared..Just pressure cook the sweet potatoes and blend as a smooth paste with enough milk and sugar and finally add this paste to the cooking sago, thats the way this delicious kheer gets ready in very less time...With a beautiful and a pleasant orange colour, this kheer was one of our recent favourite..

Sweet potato kheer

2cups Sweet potato chunks (pressure cooked)
1/2cup Sago
3/4cup Sugar
Few Saffron strands
1cup Unsweetened condensed milk
1tsp Cardamom powder
Few Cashew nuts (fried)
Almond flakes

Grind the pressure cooked sweet potato chunks with sugar and condensed milk as smooth paste, meanwhile cook the sago with enough water until they get half cooked, add immediately the grounded paste cook until the kheer turns thick and the sago gets cooked well, stir continously else the cooked sago gets stick to the bottom of the vessel, now add the cardamom powder, saffron strands, fried cashew nuts and almond flakes...

Enjoy warm or cold..

Hey! this is a great idea. Never thought of this before. I have tried with different fruits but never a potato.

Interesting!

Hi Priya... I have always wanted to do something with sweet potatoes. As kids we used to love a simple potato & sweet potato fry that my mom used to make. I tried a sweet potato halwa some monnths ago, but didnt taste great. This sounds like a good recipe though!
