Shakarkandi ki chat recipe – Baked sweet potatoes in Indian style

shakarkandi / ratale / ratalu chat This Tangy Baked Sweet potatoes ( shakarkandi /ratale / ratalu chaat ) recipe is a healthy option of sweet potato fries. In winters when I come to Delhi the first thing I tasted on road side eatery was tangy sweet potatoes (shakarkandi ki chat). They made it in two ways -

Roasted sweet potatoes on charcoal or husk

or

Deep fried sweet potatoes

 

Then they season it nicely with lots of spices, lemon juice and add little mustard oil to give that pungent, prickly aroma, with the irresistible aftertaste. I really loved this sweet potato recipe and thought of making it little healthy. The roasted option was really good but it was very mushy and my kid said he would not eat it. The fried ones are not at all a good option.

I baked these sweet potatoes with little oil and salt and then seasoned it with some spices and it turned out very well. I hope you will enjoy this recipe
