Adding grated sweet potatoes along with milk being boiled to make rabdi helps achieve the desired consistency and texture quite easily and quickly, without much ado.

This is because the grated sweet potato, once cooked, gives a texture similar to the creamy chunks found in traditional rabdi.

Since sweet potato has an innate sweetness, the amount of sugar to be added is also less. Flavoured with kesar and elaichi, and garnished with almonds and pistachios, you will be amazed to see how closely Sweet Potato Rabdi resembles the traditional, time-consuming recipe.

Also do try mithais using sweet potato like Sweet Potato Halwa or Sweet Potato Puranpoli
