Sweet Potato in Jaggery Syrup – Vrat ka Khana

Sweet Potato in Jaggery Syrup

I love Sweet Potato in Jaggery Syrup. It is a simple, yet wholesome dessert that makes great use of the sweet potato.

In parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat, this dish is classified as Vrat ka Khana or a dish eaten on fasting days.
