Sweet potato chaat


Happy Shivaratri !!

In my childhood, Mom used to give us boiled sweet potato as a snack on Mahashivaratri. We used to love it. The natural taste of the vegetable is so yummy and delicious. I wanted to make a recipe with it.  I searched through my recipe books, notes for ideas and checked the ingredients in my pantry. Should I make – mashed sweet potato, curry (pulusu), sweet potato frys ? None of them seemed to be interesting enough for now. After some more thinking I came up with the idea to make a snack – sweet potato chaat !!

Once I decided to make the snack, I thought of different options like boil or roast or simply peel and chop. Roast on gas / grill gives a different taste and takes less time to make so why not try ‘roast’.  Done! Since it’s a chaat, can I bring some sweet-n-sour flavor? Sweet tamarind-dates chutney was the answer.

So here we go … sweet potato chaat.
