Spiced or tampered sweet potatoes are my husband’s favorite. Stir fry and garlic flavored curry are very popular sweet potato dishes. But I wanted to do something similar to Upma so just boiled and tampered to give it Indian flavor.
Sweet potatoes- 2 (serves 2)
Green chilly- 1 to 2
Freshly grated coconut- 2 spoons
Onion- 1 small
Tampering- Mustard, curry leaves, asafoetida
Boil sweet potatoes and peel the skin once it is cooled. Take a deep pan and add a spoon of oil, mustard, curry leaves, green chillies and let it splutter then add chopped onions and fry it golden brown. Then add a pinch of asafoetida and add mashed sweet potatoes and salt mix well. Add grated coconut and sweet potatoes are ready to be served. You can add little water and make it gravy and have it with chapathis. This is one popular evening snack for rainy season.
