I wasn’t a great fan of sweet potato as a kid, but I do have some beautiful memories associated with it. We lived in our farm house till I was 4 years old and used to cook with firewood back then. After the busy morning of cooking breakfast and lunch, our kitchen fire would be turned off and once in a while my mom would throw in some sweet potatoes, regular potatoes or even onion into the hot coal for an evening snack. Vegetables would get cooked slowly in the hot coal and the nutty, smoky aroma from the coal, charred dark skin and slow cooking would result in the best tasting roasted vegetables. We all enjoyed them with our evening coffee. According to me that is really the best way to eat sweet potato.
I have shared my second most favourite sweet potato recipe at ‘One Green Planet’. If you have never tried Indian Spices on sweet potato, please give it a shot.
