Sweet potato is said to be healthier than the plain potato. Generally many fasting dishes are made using sweet potato. Generally many kids including mine are not willing to eat this healthy vegetable. So, I had introduced it to them through it’s chaat recipe.
Once while discussing this with my friend, she gave me this recipe. I just added an extra ingredient like Ragi flour to make it more healthier!

2. Peel and grate the sweet potatoes. Add to it the above mentioned ingredients and knead to a semi soft dough using water as required.

This is an excellent idea for tiffins too. Dough can prepared beforehand and stored in the refrigerator. Do try variations by adding flours of your choice or even some grated paneer. Njoy it for breakfast lunch or dinner with some curds and achaar (pickle).
