    Looks good one and I will try. But I doubt will it be ok if the grated sweet potato is added without cooking? will it be cooked in jaggery syrup?

    Hello ! Where does the grated sweet potato come in this beetroot jam recipe ? Btw , what about the jaggery syrup which does not feature in this jam recipe at all !
