Sweet Potato Pudding

Sweet Potatoes or shakarkandi(शकरकंदी) are considered as highly nutritious. They are a good source of dietary fibers, vitamin, A, C, iron, calcium and carbohydrates. This is a phalahari dessert and can be eaten in the days of fasting. There are so many different skin color sweet potatoes available around the world. We get orange skinned sweet potatoes in our state which is rich in beta carotene. I remember my grandmother used to make this halwa for Ekadashi vrat.
