1) Wash the sabudana well. Then soak in enough water for 2 hours.

2) After two hours, discard the soaking water and let it drain.

3) While sabudana is soaking, boil or steam the sweet potato till it is soft. I have pressure cooked the sweet potato for 3-4 whistles (it was large sweet potato, so it took 4 whistles. So adjust the time accordingly). Once cool to touch, peel it and cut into small cubes.

6) Do stir every two minutes and make sure that milk is not sticking to the bottom and sides of the pan. Simmer till it reduces slightly and becomes thick. I have simmered for 10 minutes. I have started with 3 cups of milk and within this time, milk quantity is about 2 cups.

7) Now add soaked, drained sabudana.

Serve the kheer warm or chilled. For serving chilled kheer, let the kheer come to room temperature then chill in the refrigerator for few hours. Once it is nice and chilled, you can serve.

Serving suggestion: During the fasting, vrat or on regular days, this sabudana sweet potato kheer can be served as a dessert.
Notes:

  • Instead of boiled, cubed shakarkand, you can add grated raw sweet potato. In that case, In the separate pan you need to saute the raw grated sweet potato in a little bit of ghee. Saute till they are tender. and add in the kheer along with sugar and nuts.
  • You can reduce or increase the sugar quantity. Adjust it as per the sweetness of your sweet potato.
  • Here I have used Indian white sweet potato. You can use orange sweet potato that is available here in USA. But in that case, you need to increase the sugar quantity. Because orange is less sweeter than the white one.
