Garam Masala Sweet Potato Casserole

Garam Masala Sweet Potato Casserole

A classic Sweet Potato Casserole made with garam masala and sweetened with jaggery is a delicious addition to a Thanksgiving spread. It's topped with pecans and toasted marshmallows and can be served as a side dish or a dessert!

The mashed sweet potatoes are mixed with garam masala in addition to nutmeg and cinnamon. The garam masala, a warming blend of spices, gives a touch of savory and warmth to the sweet potato mash. It's also sweetened with jaggery, or gur, an unrefined sugar which gives the potatoes a deep caramel flavor.

cook Time: 20 mins


– 2 lbs sweet potato – ½ cup unsalted butter, melted – 2 eggs – ½ cup jaggery – ½ cup whole milk


Boil sweet potatoes until they're fork tender, then mash them. Add in unsalted butter, eggs, jaggery, milk, vanilla extract, salt, garam masala, nutmeg, cinnamon, and half of the pecans into the mixing bowl. Stir together until smooth and combined. Transfer to a baking dish.


Top it with the rest of the chopped pecans and the mini marshmallows.


Bake the casserole in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the marshmallows have lightly browned. Remove from the oven and enjoy warm!

Use a kitchen torch to char some parts of the marshmallows! I think it adds so much more flavor since the marshmallows are my favorite part.
