SWEET POTATO CUTLETS/ KEBABS

Cooking has always been a hobby and cooking for others even more! So when I joined the gym, it was a little food treat for my friends there whenever I could. On one such occasions I had taken Ragda Patties for them and while they relished it, a foodie, fitness freak friend of mine said she would have eaten more had the cutlet/ kebab been made with sweet potato ( a healthier option) Ever since she said that to me I have meaning to try making them at home. Somehow got so busy with other things and the months sped by! It completely slipped my mind, until today! It was not very difficult to think of a specific recipe beacuse I have made potato cutlets previously. With a few alterations to that came up with the healthy and really tasty recipe!

This is what you’ll need

Sweet potatoes: 4

Carrots: 2 (peeled and grated)

Green chillies: 4 (finely chopped)

Coriander leaves: 2tbsp (finely chopped)

Garam masala: 1tsp

Amchur: 1tsp

Salt to taste

Semolina: To coat the cutlets

Oil for shallow frying

Let’s get cooking

1. Pressure cook the sweet potato. Once it cools open the pressure cooker, drain out all the water, peel the sweet potato and mash well.

2. Add the carrots, green chillies, coriander leaves, garam masala, amchur and salt to the mashed potato and mix well.

3. Shape into round cutlets, flatten between the palms, coat with the semolina and keep ready.

4. Heat the oil and once hot shallow fry the cutlets until evenly brown. Turn over and cook again. Drain on a kitchen towel.

5. Serve hot as a snack or starter with ketchup or a spicy chutney of your choice.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 4o minutes

Serves: 4
