Sweet Potato stir fry | Side Dish for Rice

 I remember one of aunt saying about the benefit of this sweet potatoes and how this can be easily smashed and feed for babies from seven months.I always have a liking towards this potato and can eat in what ever way it is cooked.sometimes I just cook and serve as evening snacks making balls of  it along with grated coconut and sugar.Mostly I cooked and then add some spicy masala made with coconut and spice to serve as side for rice.

But in this recipe. we don't need to make any masala as such.Just cook with spices ,add grated coconut and switch off.This makes an excellent combo with rice when served along with dal or sambar.
