Sweet Potato Kheer | Ratalyachi Kheer

sweet potato kheer

How many times we pick up sweet potato from market when we do grocery.I know very few. Either it is used for baby food or for fasting/upwas/vrat recipes. Same here, I also pick up this high beta carotene vegetable mostly on my upwas days like Mahashivratri.

I make many varieties of ratale / sweet potato like sweet potato upma, ratalyache kap (sweet potato caramelized in Jaggery sauce),sweet potato porridge mostly for my kids and many times used grated sweet potato in upwasache Thalipeeth. So it is good to eat variety dishes of sweet potato.

I made ratalyachi kheer / sweet potato kheer on this mahashivratri. This kheer is very delicious and tasty .Chunks of sweet potato were very well cooked in milk, giving very nutty flavor and taste along with roasted cashews.

You can serve Sweet Potato Kheer or Ratalyachi kheer as a hot or cold, whichever way it is gonna taste awesome….;-)
