Sweet Potato/Yam Parata

It is a big challenge to pack something healthy for kids! This is one such recipe that goes into lunch box.

There are different kinds of sweet potato and yam we get here. There is difference between these two. I am still trying to figure out. I have tried all different varieties and concluded to use purple ones and light brown ones. The dark brown skinned sweet potato is indeed very sweet and I cannot take that much of sweet.

What you need?

Any kind of sweet potato - 3
cumin/ajwain-1/4 tsp
salt-1/2 tsp
turmeric - 1/4 tsp (optional)

How to make?

1. Wash sweet potatoes very well. Cut into two and pressure cook in a covered vessel without any water in it. You should have water at the bottom. If we put it in water like potatoes, it becomes very mushy. Keep for 3 whistles

2. Let it cool. Peel it and mash it with spices

3. Make paratas like you do generally. I top them with Ghee for kids.
