Sweet potato parathas with tomato onion chutney- kids recipes

I have never tried anything with sweet potatoes.These are widely available and eaten during the shivrathri in the month of feb or march. I was googling for a recipe with sweet potato and was surprised to find its culinary use all over the world. Sweet potato pie, cakes ….and indian food like gulab jamuns,koftas,kababs etc and many more..

Anyway, I decided to make simple stuffed paratha with them. It definitely tasted different.It had a sweet taste and by adding the regular spices,made it a little spicy too.

And for the side dish I usually prefer curd for any parathas. But this tomato onion chutney is a good combination too.
