Dry Curry, Sizzling Tastebuds

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 / Pattiesform , use it as a filling for Baked Samosasor 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.
