Caramelised Sweet Potato / Ratalaycha Sheera
Sweet Potato - 2, cut into thin roundels with skins
Ghee / Clarified Butter - 2 tbsp
Coconut Palm Sugar / Turbinado Sugar- 1/2 cup
Milk / Milk Powder - 1/2 cup (optional)
Dry Fruits for garnishing
Heat the ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and add the sweet potato slices. Cook on high heat for 10 minutes tossing frequently.
Then cook on low heat till the sweet potato is completely cooked. If using milk or mawa, add it when the potatoes are half cooked.
Add the sugar and cook till the mixture becomes a little dry. Sprinkle some more sugar on the bottom of the pan and cook the mixture undisturbed for a few minutes till a nice brown caramel is formed.
Similarly sprinkle some more sugar on the top and flip it and cook undisturbed for a few minutes for the caramel to form.
Sprinkle some dry fruits on top and serve when cooled.
