Vegan Sweet Potato Kheeer

After looking at different kheers made with coconut milk in some of the blogs, I was tempted to try it out. Moreover, we suspect that our older one has suddenly become sensitive to milk. So we are planning to start her on soy milk and see if she shows any signs of improvement. 

Anyway, coming back to the kheer, it turned out to be a very delectable kheer with a grainy texture which my little one loved. I had to convince my older one to try some which she did and thought it was a tad too sweet. S and myself thoroughly enjoyed the remaining portion. In fact S was surprised that I had prepared such a limited quantity. :) 

For Day 3  of BM 12, here is the Vegan Sweet Potato Kheer..

Ingredients - 

*Sweet Potato Shredded 2 cups
Coconut Milk 1 can (400 ml)
Brown Sugar 4-5 Tbsp (or as needed)
Cardamom Powder 1/4 tsp
Dry roasted nuts of your choice (I used Almond, Cashew and Pista)

* I initially started off by using shredded sweet potato. Upon cooking it I realized my kids might not like the texture. So half way through, I used a hand blender and pureed it. So the choice is yours.

Vegan Sweet Potato Kheer

Method Of Preparation -

In a microwave safe bowl, add coconut milk and shredded sweet potato. I added about 1/2 cup of water to dilute the coconut milk.

Cook in the microwave for about 4-5 min or until the sweet potato is cooked.

Note that the same can be prepared over the stove top as well.

At this point of time I pureed the mixture and added brown sugar and boiled in 30 sec increments, stirring it until the sugar melted and the kheer was ready to boil over.

In total I cooked in the microwave for about 9-10 min.

Just before removing from the microwave, add cardamom powder, mix and set aside.

Meanwhile dry roast the chopped nuts in a microwave safe plate for about 2 min. Remove and garnish.

Cool the kheer and enjoy!
