When we were kids amma used to buy sweet potatoes only during pongal, that also she will buy only few..We used to fight for it, because everyone loves it. But nowadays we buy it more often.. We don’t usually cook sweet potatoes, it is had just boiled…Have you ever tried that way..It taste so good. Couple of weeks before amma bought few pounds of sweet potatoes from the market..And I was wondering what to do with those other than boiling it..So when I browsed, I found sweet potato fries and sweet potato poriyal is rocking the internet..So thought to try it out..And the result was not bad, I realised that sweet potatoes taste great even it is cooked and fried.
I hope you will love it for sure and let me know the results..
