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..

Sweet Potato Puran Poli

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
The Shravan Month has started and the sweets are here:-), I love sweets.. 
One more delicious sweet from Gujarat. As per my knowledge, puranpoli is very common in all the parts of India. But when I was browsing for Gujarati sweets, I saw this sweet in all the sites I visited. Then I thought of making the puran poli with sweet potatoes. And they were yumm.
Here is the recipe.

For Stuffing
Sweet potatoes - 3 to 4
Jaggery - as per the quantity you get from mashed potatoes
Salt a pinch
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
For the cover or poli
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Maida or APF - 1/4 cup
Oil  - 1 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Water to make the dough
Oil to shallow fry the poli.
Take the flours, oil and salt in a plate or a bowl. Add water to make soft dough. Keep it aside for half an hour.
Boil the sweet potatoes and allow to cool.
Grate the jaggery and keep.
Mash the boiled potatoes. Add the jaggery, salt and cardamom powder. Mix well. Divide into equal small size balls.
Take the ready dough, divide it into tiny balls.(half the size of normal small lemon)
Take dough ball and roll into a small puri.
Take the potato ball and keep in the middle. Cover it and make the stuffed ball ready.
Use oil to roll into small puran poli.
Heat tawa and roast the poli on both the sides till golden color.
Serve hot with ghee, pickle and fried dry stuffed chillies...
