SWEET POTATO TIKKIS
A popular street food in India are shallow fried patties which are known as Tikkis in Hindi. The most common of these is the Aloo Tikkis made with potatoes. Today's recipe is for Tikkis made with sweet potato instead!
Sweet Potatoes are known as Shakarkhand in Hindi, Sihi Genasu in Kannada and Kannang in my mother tongue, Konkani.
In addition, we know that the sweet potato has several health benefits.
Sweet Potato Tikkis can be made fast and can be enjoyed as an evening snack with a hot cup of tea.
