Sweet potato halwa is an all-time favourite traditional indian sweet that is an ideal accompaniment for any indian meal. Usually, it is laden with loads of ghee and that is the reason dieters steer clear of it. I’ve managed to make mouth-watering halwa minus the fat, but rich in fibre, potassium and calcium by using sweet potatoes! the calories are further lowered due to the usage of low-fat milk.
