Shallow Fried Sweet Potatoes


Hello and welcome friends again. Here I am today with a tasty side dish recipe which you will like for sure. As we all know sweet potato is a sweeter version of normal potatoes. We make many varieties of it, like, baked sweet potatoes, soups, salads, puddings, curries, stir-fries and many kinds of desserts too. It is rich in starch along with complex carbs, dietary fibres, and beta-carotene. And micronutrients like Vitamin B5, B6, and manganese. In my native place farmers after harvesting these sweet potatoes in November, roast, peel and eat it with black salt as their afternoon and evening snack. And they do the roasting in clay hearths which gives a very good taste to the potatoes. Today I decided to shallow fry them with mild masalas and wanted to share it with you all. So the recipe is as follows—-

  2. Gram Flour – 1 tbsp
  3. Rice Flour – 1 tbsp
