Adraki Rathaloo | Ginger flavoured Sweet potato stir fry


Adraki Rathaloo is a simple mildly flavoured stir fry that is super easy to put together and goes very well with steamed rice, curd rice or even Rasam-Rice. Once a fortnight, we have sweet potato in Tikki / Patties form , use it as a filling for Baked Samosas or even make a quick oil free Rathaloo Chaat. Compared to the potato, this tuber is known to be beneficial for diabetics too with its low glycemic Index. Addition of onions is totally optional and I havent added the same. The mild flavour of ginger in this stir fry is a wonderful discovery I made this noon  as we had this with Poricha Rasam, steamed rice for Sunday Lunch. 

Sending this to Blogging Marathon # 15 under "Accompaniments" theme as a day 7 entry. In case you have missed any of the last 6 days under this theme, here is a quick recap.

Now, over to the dish today.

  16. I also like that ginger taste of this recipe. Thanks for sharing this here because I want to know more recipe that I need to cook. I always cook a stir fried chicken and I think I already master it even I don't have a recipe.
