Sakkaravalli Kizhangu Halwa | Shakarkandi Halwa | Sweet Potato Halwa Recipe

Sweet Potato Halwa Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Have you tried making sweet potato halwa ? It is one of the most delicious and easy sweets/desserts to make. Apart from being hassle free, it is also healthy. There is no refined sugar in this recipe and addition of ghee is optional. I add little ghee to make it even more tasty.  But if you are vegan , you can omit ghee and it still tastes really good. Cardamom and a pinch of ginger powder gives so much flavour to this vegetable halwa. 

A must try.
