Sweet Potato Kheer - Sakkarai Valli Kizhangu Payasam - Shakarkand Kheer - Ratnapuri Gadda Payasam

Sweet Potato - I like the taste of it. Just boiling it with bit of salt is good enough for me. After moving to SG I have seen different varieties of Sweet potatoes. There are white, orange and purple varieties. All are diff in taste. Purple one is not very sweet. When get some good purple variety I will normally buy and make the steamed sweet potato. For this month Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge Sharanya Pathmanathan gave me purple sweet potato and milk as ingredients. The moment I got these ingredients I have decided to try Kheer. It came out pretty good I have used purple sweet potato for this but you can try any variety of sweet potatoes just adjust the sugar based on sweetness of the potatoes. This post goes to
