RataLyachi Bhaaji - Sweet Potatoes Curry

Indian sweet potatoes are quite different than those available here. But this curry works for both the varieties.

Sweet Potato Curry

3-4 smallish, Indian variety of sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled and chopped, approx = 4 cups

salt to taste

1 cup plain yogurt

sugar to taste

1/4 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts powder/daaNyache koot


2 tsp ghee/toop/clarified butter

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

2-3 small green chilies, chopped


1. Heat ghee in a saucepan. Add cumin seeds and chilies.

2. As the seeds splutter, switch the gas to low. Add chopped, cooked sweet potatoes, salt, sugar, powdered peanuts and whisked yogurt.

3. Let the curry heat through.

4. Serve hot of its own or with rajgiryachi poLi as a complete fasting meal.

Note -

1. American variety of sweet potato can also be used. Adjust the proportion accordingly as they are quite big. You may need just one American sweet potato.

2. Some people prefer not to eat cilantro/coriander leaves for fasting. But if you do not have any such preference, you can use some cilantro for garnish.

3. This curry is served with rajgiryachi poLi/Dushmi or puri to make a complete fasting meal.
