Easy Sweet Potato Raita




Have you ever tried sweet potato in your side dish?As a kid,I remember having the boiled one's.

Tried to make raita today and it was a hit!My 2.5 year old daughter loved it.

The creamy texture with the sweetness along with yogurt and tempering.Doesn't it sound yummy and easy.

Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes....2 big
Plain yogurt.........2 cups
salt to taste
tempering
oil......................1 Tbspn
mustard seeds....1 tspn
green chilly........2
urad dal..............1 tspn
chana dal............1 tspn
curry leaves........2 string
turmeric..............a pinch

Process





1)Lets cook the sweet potatoes.You can pressure cook it for 2 whistle or microwave high for 20-25 min.Even just cover and cook it on the stove top.

2) Peel of  the skin and mash it.

3)Add the beaten yogurt.

4)Next the most important  par,the tempering!.Heat oil in a pan then add mustard seeds,when it starts  to sizzle add chana dal after few seconds add urad dal and wait till both the dals turn golden brown.Add the chopped green chillies,curry leaves and add this flavoufull tempering to the sweet potato mixture.

5)Add salt to taste , mix well & enjoy.

Notes

1)If you are microwaving the potatoes or cooking on stove top then cut it into small pieces to speed up the cooking.

2)You can add more yogurt if u like.I kind of like it to be thick.
