Sweet-Sweet Potato / Meethi Shakarkandi

‘Sweet Potato’ as the name says are sweet-tasting. It is a starchy root vegetable that is available in every part of the world though they differ in sizes and colors. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants and can be included in our diet for health benefits.

Sweet potatoes are versatile and can be consumed in various forms, baked, fried, pan-cooked, boiled, or steamed and can be enjoyed in both savory and sweet flavor. I like to prepare in both the forms but mostly I like savory. My husband and son love to eat in sweet flavor. Today I am sharing an easy and quick recipe of sweet potato. It is a pan-cooked, sweet, and healthy dish and can be relished by all. 


What I like about this recipe is its delicious, healthy, and requires only 2 main ingredients. So, why wait…
