Purple Sweet Potato Hash

Every time, I visit "Sprouts", I get to see at least one new fruit or vegetable.  Last time, I saw purple sweet potatoes. These were neither Peruvian purple potatoes nor purple root vegetable we get in India. We call it KonFal/कोनफळ  in Marathi and Kand/કંદ  in Gujarati.

I decided to make a typical American side dish called "Hash".

Purple Sweet Potato Hash
3 purple sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced

Salt and black pepper as needed

2 tbsp.  oven roasted tomatoes in olive oil.

0. Keep diced potatoes and sweet potatoes in a bowl of water.
1. Heat a cast iron griddle.
2. Add oven roasted tomatoes in olive oil. Spread evenly so oil coats the griddle.
3. Place drained sweet potatoes and potatoes - preferably in a single layer.
4. Sprinkle salt and black pepper.
5. Stir fry from time to time till they are crispy and cooked well.
6. Serve as a side dish.

Note -
1. After chopping, potatoes are generally kept in a bowl of water so they don't discolor. Drain them completely before adding to the cast iron pan. Otherwise, water droplets will not let potatoes turn crispy.
2. I make similar hash with other root vegetables like rainbow carrots, yams etc.
