The One with Sweet Potato Halwa

Hola Amigos !!
    This is my first Pongal after my marriage and it was simply sweet. So I thought of posting a sweet recipe to celebrate my joy  with you all !! Healthy and quick Recipe to make ....

Nutrients : A very good food with high content in fibre and rich in Iron, Vitamin C. Helps to reduce cholesterol and a excellent alternative to potato. In short one of the good guys for Optimal health :).

This is what you need :
Sweet Potato - 1 (medium size)
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Nuts - 1-2 tbsp

This is how you do :
1. Boil Sweet Potato and mash them well.
2. In a kadai add ghee and after it starts melting add mashed sweet potato and milk together and  simmer the flame. Since sweet potato is already boiled, it will not take much time for it to boil together.
3. After they get boiled add sugar and mix them. Now mix them together until the ghee oozes out of the edges of the potato mixture. It will not take more than 10 Mins to reach this consistency.
4. Finally add the cardamom powder, nuts and turn off the flame.

Yummy and Healthy Sweet Potato Halwa is Ready !!!!
