Sweet potato kheer
Written by Jayashree
Published on January 6, 2016

Since the beginning of the new year, I have been on a sweet spree here ! My third sweet dish in a row Sweet potato kheer! I recently made this kheer and it was too good, so I decided to share with you all.  Sweet potato is again another healthy food . It is rich source of Vitamin A. It also contains Vitamin B, Vitamin C along with other minerals as calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous.

Some facts of sweet potato :

Sweet potato is neither a potato nor a yam . It is totally different from both of these.

Sweet potato is a dicotyledon plant and belongs to the family of Convolvulaceae.

It is regarded as one of the worlds healthiest food.

Steaming is the best way to consume this veggie, though it can be boiled or roasted.

It grows well in the tropical region, thus it is found in abundance in Africa, Asia and America.

This post is part of the Culinary Hoppers Blog hop with the theme “Udupi Cuisine”

Udupi cuisine is part of the Karnataka cuisine. Udupi is a small district  with a religious background. Thus, this cuisine was formed primarily by the Asthamathas of Udupi.  It is a satvic food which makes use of rice, greens and pulses.Coconut is one of the essential ingredients of their cooking. Vegetables as pumpkin, bitter gourd, cucumber, jackfruit  and plantain are primarily used.

Now, their cuisine consists of sambar made with fresh spices and coconut, rasam, chutney,gojju, variety of  payasams, pickles, and tasty stir fry. It is worthy to mention here that masala dosa is from this place. A wide variety of dosas and idlis are made for breakfast.
