Sweet Potato – Recently you hear a lot about this tuber veggie in this space right friends??? Sort of potato with natural inherited sweetness, this vegetable has all goodness that REAL good food demands. Some how this humble tuber gets included in my routine vegetable market trip as every-week I plan some new recipe using this. Remember sweet potato puran poli? which followed an awesome dessert, the yummy ever sweet potato kheer. Those two rocking foods no doubt, have reappeared couple of times at udupi recipes kitchen to fulfill the sweet-dessert cravings.
After dessert and sweet food, it’s snack time. 30-minute easy tea time snack sweet potato bajji can no longer wait sitting in drafts folder, so it’s right here. It can probably seem exaggeration when I make a statement like “Sweet potato bajji is one of the best out of all other vegetable based fritters that I have tasted till now”. But it’s TRUE. Seriously.
The bajji batter preparation remains more or less the same. Besan flour, rice flour plus the basic spices combined with water to make smooth, coat-able consistency batter. Ensure it is neither too runny nor too thick. Dip each circular slice of sweet potato in to the batter, let it coat on both sides of slice and carefully drop in to hot cooking oil. Watch the sweet potato bajji turning golden brown in oil, remove and drain the excess oil. These deep fried goodies insist me to devour more than I intend.
