Here is another great dessert recipe to give you that boost of energy during your Navratri fasting. Sweet potato ladoos are extremely easy-to-make and the ladoos taste scrumptious.

  • Step 1 Mash the sweet potatoes after boiling

  • Step 2 Roast Makhanas
    In a pan, heat 2 teaspoon ghee and roast makhanas (lotus seeds) on medium flame until they turn crispy or slightly brown in colour. Take out the makhanas and set them aside. Grind them into fine powdery form once they cool down.
  • Step 3 Stir fry the dry fruits
    Pour in the remaining ghee into the pan and cook cashews until they start changing colour. Now add the raisins to it. Fry on a low flame until the cashews turn golden brown, the raisins turn fluffy and take a golden colour.
  • Step 4 Mash and mix all the ingredients
    Now add mashed sweet potato to the remaining ghee. After cooking for 2 minutes or so add rose water and sugar, mix well. Stir continuously until the mixture thickens and all moisture evaporates. Take out the mixture in a flat dish and allow it to cool. Add the prepared dry fruits and mix well.
  • Step 5 Sweet potato ladoos are ready to relish!
    Now grease your palms and shape the mixture into small even balls or ladoos. Once done. Roll these up in the makhana powder to coat them with it. Your sweet potato ladoos are done.
