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.
- Sweet potato – one (big)
- Green chutney – three tblsp (see my recipe in chutney page)
- Sweet chutney – three tblsp
- Thin Sev – little
- Chopped cucumber – little
- Red chilli powder – a pinch
- Finely chopped onions – little
Roast the sweet potato on grill.
Cool it and remove the skin. Chop in to cubes. In a pan, add one tsp oil , fry sweet potato for a minute. Then add green chutney, sweet chutney and mix well. Transfer in to a serving plate. Sprinkle sev, cucumber, onions and red chilli powder on top.
