The benefits of sweet potatoes need no introduction. I’d put my hands up for them any day! They’re a sweet source of good, anti-inflammatory nutrition, rich in anti-oxidants, excellent source of Vitamins A and C, have unique proteins, and the list goes on… Surprisingly, even though they are sweet, they are very good for diabetics too. So that gives everyone a reason to try this out. I made this healthy snack for us yesterday evening, to ward off the looming Monday-blues settling over us like a dark, gloom-laden cloud. I was starting to feel miserable that Sunday was getting over too soon, and what best to cheer me up than some healthy, sweet taters!
- Sweet Potatoes – 4-5 nos (pressure cooked/steamed, de-skinned, and diced into small 1/2 inch cubes)
- Onions – 2 nos (large-sized; finely chopped)
- Tomatoes – 2 nos (large-sized; finely chopped)
- Coriander/Cilantro – a handful, finely chopped
- Lime juice – from 1 whole lime
- White Pepper powder – 1 tsp
- Chat powder – 1 tsp
- Kala Namak/Black salt – 1 tsp
- Salt – to taste
- Muffin-cup shaped chat katoris (optional) – as many as you would require (I used up about 20 of them for the 2 of us)
- Sev (optional) – 1 cup (I din’t use any)
- Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl and stir well to incorporate.
- Scoop spoonfuls of the mixture into the muffin-cup shaped chat katoris (if using), garnish with sev and serve immediately to prevent the chat katoris from getting soggy. For a healthier version, just garnish with sev (if using) and serve in a plate/deep bowl.
