RATALYACHA KEES / GRATED SWEET POTATO STIR-FRY / NAVRATRI RECIPES / UPVAAS RECIPES


This is one of the simplest recipe from Maharashtra Cuisine made specially on the fasting days. Grated sweet potato is stir-fried with lot of green chillies, roasted peanut powder, grated coconut and coriander leaves  with a simple tempering of cumin seeds. For seasoning we just use salt and little sugar is optional. I did not add it as the sweet potato has natural sugars.
This recipe is for Shhhh Cooking Secretly group event in which we are paired with someone different each month who selects 2 secret ingredients for us. We make the dish using those and post it in the group. My partner of the month is Anu Kollon. Her blog is - Ente Thattukada .. do visit to check out yummy recipes.
