We don’t really enjoy the sweet potatoes much as it tastes sweet and a vegetable being so sweet is somewhat unacceptable:). But they are really healthy especially for kids, So I do buy them quite regularly. I make a dry curry with it just adding some red chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt. It does taste good.
Last time, I made this chaat and we enjoyed it. My son is not too fond of it. But my daughter likes sweet potatoes as I have been feeding her mashed sweet potatoes since when she was around 8-9 months old and she used to love them.
It has been happening from last 2-3 times, when I cut open the sweet potatoes , they are purple in colour and it was quite surprising for me as I had never seen such a colour before. But its quite tempting. I searched about it in the net and found that some mentioned it as purple yam. Further search showed that purple yam and purple sweet potatoes are quite different though they look very similar. Anyway I have not really understood to differentiate the two. But the chaat is quite enjoyable. You can make them with whatever kind of sweet potatoes you get. And this can be had during fasts too!!
