 Sweet potato paratha

Sweet potato paratha is an easy and interesting alternate to our regular sweet potato sabzi / poriyal. In Tamil, we call it as Sakkaravalli kizhangu chapati. Basically we love to eat boiled sweet potato as a post meal snack. Apart from this, we South Indians make Sweet potato curry / Sakkaravalli kizhangu poriyal or add them in sambar, vatha kuzhambu.

For a change, I tried this North Indian style Sweet potato paratha for the first time. It came out so well. Its so easy to make as well. You don’t need to make a separate stuffing for this paratha. Just mix the boiled and mashed sweet potato and spice powders with wheat flour to make the paratha dough and roll it thin or thick as you wish. Cook in low to medium flame for soft paratha. Apply ghee and serve hot with masala raita or boondi raita. It tastes great. It tastes more like thepla.

Lets see how to make sweet potato paratha in an easy way with step by step pictures and video.
