Friends! Today is Sunday. Last day of the weekend plus World Cup Cricket’s BIG match day. You all would have spent a fair amount of time watching that great WIN, snacking on some crunchy goodies. Holiday+World CUP Cricket match accompanied by a multi course lunch followed by a super delicious dessert, How does it feel? It is REALLY REALLY a most awaited and super wonderful day to cherish with family I know.
Well, I enjoyed pretty simple South Indian Rice + Curry meal which ended with this drool-worthy sweet potato kheer. It’s the SWEET POTATO season and these light purple colored tubers can be part of your healthy dessert which I didn’t even know till recently. Yes I never knew that it could be such a delicious kheer without SUGAR and Dairy milk.
Home made coconut milk and jaggery based sweet potato kheer is way too healthy with a veggie included in it. The sweet potato cubes drenched in jaggery syrup and coconut milk will melt in your mouth justifying itself as a glorious WINTER dessert.
Note: Sweet potato cubes don’t inherit the property of thickening like Aval or Sagu does in case of Aval payasm and Sago kheer respectively. So ensure you add just enough water to cook the cubes of sweet potato. As you cook them in coconut milk it may seem running but once it combines with medium rava the kheer gets it’s regular spooning consistency.
With bowlful of sweet potato payasam on hand, watching that big match was heavenly and I didn’t miss it.
