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!

For more such healthy breakfast and tiffin ideas do try the…….

1) Goad Poale or

2) Beetroot Parathas or

3) Aaloo Parathas

Here’s the recipe for Rataalyache Parathe…..

Prep Time : 30 min

Cooking Time : 6-7 min

Serves : 4


2 Large Sweet potatoes

1 3/4 cups Whole wheat flour

1/4 cup Ragi flour (naachni)

2 tsp Ginger green chilli paste (to be adjusted)

1/4 cup Corriander leaves …chopped

Salt to taste

Oil and water for kneading the dough

Homemade ghee for roasting the parathas


1. First thing that needs to be done for making the sweet potato parathas, is to steam the sweet potatoes in a pressure cooker or microwave.

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.

3. Make small balls out of it, dust with some flour and start rolling circular discs for the paratha. Heat a griddle and roast the parathas on it on both sides using homemade ghee.

4. Serve the delicious and nutritious Rataalyache Parathe with some tomato ketchup, green corriander chutney and fresh curds.


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).

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃
