Sweet Potato and Bengal gram Payasa

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Sweets!!!!!!!Sweets!!!!!I love sweets :-)
I always think and try to remove at least one sweet from my favorite list. But no way!! I love everything. I always get scared that what happens to me if I get diabetes!! There is 100% chance as it is hereditary, but that is not stopping me from eating sweets :-)
Here is one more sweet which I love to eat (I should  find new word for this!!!!) The twist in this is adding sweet potato.
We call it Genasina huggi(Genasu=Sweet potato) in Kannada.

Sweet Potato - 2 big
Chana dal - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch
Poppy seeds - 1 tsp, roasted(optional)
Water to boil the chana and potato

Wash the sweet potato. Boil sweet potatoes and chana till soft. I kept both in different vessels in the cooker and gave 2 whistles. allow it to cool.
Grate the jaggery and keep it aside.
Mash the sweet potatoes and chana. Add the grated jaggery, ghee and salt.
Keep it to boil on low flame till the jaggery gets mixed.
Once its mixed, add the cardamom powder and cook for one more minute.
Add roasted poppy seeds, cook for a minute and remove from the fire.
Serve hot..
