LAHORI GAJARA GUR MEIN / SWEET POTATO IN JAGGERY SYRUP ( Vrat Ka Khana )


We make this on Ekadasi day / Gyaras .  Thick slices of sweet potato cooked in cardamom flavored jaggery syrup or sugar syrup. I remember during my childhood grandma used to read out religious stories and we would listen while eating this sweet.

Ingredients:
Sweet potatoes ..... 2 ( select small ones)
Jaggery ................ 2-3 tbsps.
Salt ............ a pinch
Ghee ......... 1 tsp.
Cardamom powder ... 1/4 tsp

Method:
1. Wash and cut the sweet potato into half inch circles. Peel the skin ( it is easier to peel after slicing)
2. Heat the ghee and add the sweet potato. Stir fry and add one cup of water, jaggery, cardamom powder and a pinch of salt.
3. Simmer and cook until done.
