SWEET POTATO ROAST
Sweet Potatoes are known as Shakarkhand in Hindi, Sihi Genasu in Kannada, Sakkarvalli Kilangu in Tamil, and Kannang in my mother tongue, Konkani.
In addition to their distinctive flavor, we know that the sweet potatoes have several health benefits.
Today's recipe is for a side dish called Sweet Potato Roast. This goes great with our meal of rice and dal. In Konkani we call this Kannanga Bhajun Upkari.
The special touch of adding dissolved asafoetida ( or what we call 'Hinga Udda" in Konkani) in the end is a must!
