SWEET POTATO SHEERA / LAHORI GAJRUN JO SEERO / SHAKARKANDI HALWA


Sweet potato sheera is a quick sweet packed with the goodness of sweet potato, desi ghee and organic jaggery and flavoured with cardamoms. This is usually made on fasting days. You can use sugar instead and add dry fruits of your choice. If you like a softer consistency you can add some milk while cooking.

Ingredients:
Sweet potatoes ... 1 large or 2 small
Organic jaggery .. 3 tbsps
Desi ghee ........... 2 tbsps
Cardamoms ...... 3-4
Pistachios and almonds ... 1 tbsp. for garnishing.

Method:

Boil the sweet potato.









Peel and mash it.









Heat ghee in a pan. Add lightly crushed cardamoms.









When they give out a nice aroma add the mashed sweet potato and saute.








After about a minute of sauteeing add the organic jaggery powder.









Stir well until the jaggery is incorporated into the sweet potato.
Garnish with sliced pistachios and almonds.
