Sweet Potato and Pistachio pudding

Sweet potatoes(Yam) are extremely nutritious ,very rich in complex carbs and vitamins .
Here's a very simple and delicious recipe which  my mom used to make .If the sweet potato is already baked this dish takes only 5-7 mins to make.I normally bake the sweet potato and refridgerate the night before as it saves time in the morning to make it for breakfast.

Note: While choosing sweet potatoes look for well rounded ones which are heavier for their size. It also is a good idea to choose organic ones as roots tend to absorb all the pesticides and chemicals from the soil that they grow in.


1 large sweet potato (baked in microwave at the 'bake potato ' setting or boiled )
1/2 cup whole milk
2 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
1 tbsp sugar or as per taste
2 tbsp ground pistachios
pinch saffron
pinch nutmeg pwdr
seeds of 3 green cardamoms

Peel the baked sweet potato and mash smooth..Heat the milk with saffron and sugar  .Heat ghee in a non-stick pan.Add the mashed sweet potato and stir fry for a minute.Add the hot milk  containing the saffron and sugar to it.Add the ground pistachios and nutmeg pwdr .Stir till the milk absorbs and blends well.Crush the cardamom seeds and add to it .Serve hot.
