Grated Sweet Potato | Ratalyacha Kees

There was a time when I used to Fast once a month, when I had all my favourite fasting foods like Sabudana Khichdi , Kheer or Vadas. I quit fasting and so also preparing these dishes decreased.
Last week when I brought Sweet Potato, I decided it to prepare it similar to these fasting foods. And seriously you won’t be disappointed with the outcome. The dish is very similar to Khichdi. Instead of Sabudana-Sago use the Grated Sweet Potato.
You Need:
  • Sweet Potato (Ratala in Marathi): De-skinned and Grated about 1 cup
  • Peanut coarse powder : ½ cup
  • Green chillies : 3-4 medium coarsely chopped
  • Cumin Seeds : ½ tbsp.
  • Curry Leaves : 10-15 in no.
  • Coriander leaves : ½ cup finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar to taste
  • Ghee – for tempering
  • Lemon : ½ piece
  • Scrapped coconut – for garnishing (optional)
You Do:
  1. Heat Ghee in Kadai, Add Cumin seeds to splutter.Follow with curry leaves and chillies.
  2. Add the Grated Sweet Potato with peanut powder, salt and sugar.
  3. Stir well so that all is mixed properly, cover and cook till done. (it tends to stick at bottom very easily – so need to take care here)
  4. Add Lime juice and mix coriander leaved and scrapped coconut.
Sweet Potato is naturally sweet by taste, green chillies makes the dish spicy and peanuts make it crunchy. Serve with Curd.
Happy Cooking and Posting about it :)
