On fasting days, we are always on the lookout for nourishing but simple recipes that sync with upvas rules. Here is a fabulous Sweet Potato Khichdi, which is just perfect for such occasions.

This simple but tasty khichdi is made with grated potatoes and sweet potatoes, tempered traditionally and flavoured with everyday ingredients like green chillies and lemon juice. We have added coarsely crushed peanuts to the recipe, to improve the flavour and texture. Roasted and crushed peanuts also boost the aroma of any recipe it is added to.

There are two things you need to take care of, when making this khichdi. As you grate the potatoes and sweet potatoes, you should keep immediately placing them in water to avoid discoloration. Before using, you must also carefully squeeze out all the water. Also, when the Sweet Potato Khichdi is getting cooked, you must keep stirring it to avoid the grated potatoes sticking to the pan.

Enjoy the Sweet Potato Khichdi hot and fresh with Rajgira ki Kadhi .
