Sweet Potatoes in Caramel Sauce

This is very easy and quick recipe to make when you are craving for something sweet. Sweet potatoes are par boiled in microwave and then they are mixed in caramel sauce and grated coconut. This is my kids all time favourite snack for the evening / after school. Sometimes I add jaggery instead of caramel sauce.


  • 3 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Fresh Coconut






1. Wash sweet potatoes and chop them roughly. In a microwave safe bowl, add sweet potatoes along with /14 cup water and a pinch of salt and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Set aside and let them cool



2. In a sauce pan, add sugar and keep the flame low. The sugar will melt in few minutes and it will start to change color


3. At this stage add butter to the pan and stir well
4. Once the butter melts and the mixture starts boiling , add fresh cream and stir continuously
5. Stir for 3 minutes until the mixture is thickened


6. Meanwhile, peel sweet potatoes and cut them into equal sized pieces
7. Once the caramel sauce is cooled little bit, add sweet potato pieces and grated coconut to the sauce and stir gently such that sweet potatoes are coated with caramel sauce


8. Cool completely and serve
