I wanted to try something new to ensure that this much ignored vegetable found its way in my kitchen and the tummies and hearts of my fussy family. I didn’t bother with any research but felt that its slightly sweet taste would make it an ideal side dish or starter.
Even while I was at the grocers buying sweet potatoes, I knew how I was going to whip up this simple yet presumably tasty recipe. It gets prepared in no time and can be made with easily available ingredients.
It isn’t much, really. Take some boiled sweet potatoes and cut them in even slices. Marinate them with olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and crushed black pepper. Leave them aside for 5 minutes.
Heat a pan and put some olive oil/ghee in it. Add the sweet potato slices and toss them in it till they turn slightly brown. Add lots of fine chopped coriander and mint leaves towards the end.
Tip: If you want the sweet potatoes crispy, you can add some rice flour at the time of marination.
The best part is that you can taste all the flavours; sourness of lemon, sweetness of sweet potatoes and spice of black pepper. You can create variations as per your liking.
Do try it and let me know how it was! 🙂
