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.
