DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the water in a heavy saucepan. Drop in the sweet potato cubes and cook, uncovered, until tender - about 25 to 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pan.
  • Add the milk, cream, sugar, saffron and cardamom. Stirring often with a wooden spoon, bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for about 1 hour, stirring often. The pudding is done when it is smooth and is thick enough to hold its shape almost solidly in the spoon.
  • With the back of the spoon, rub the pudding through a fine sieve into a serving bowl.
  • Refrigerate the pudding until cool. Before serving, sprinkle the top with a little additional ground cardamom.
