Here's a dessert well worth adding to the repertoire: it's loaded with beta carotene.

Looks and tastes most unlike a pudding. Took a long time to grate the sweep potato. Very sloppy mixture, didn't dry out enough even after 2 hours of cooking. Coconut on top went nicely brown after 30 mins. - 30 Jan 2016
