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.
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.
