Sweet Potato Cutlet | Sweet Potato Patty | Sarkaraivalli Kizhangu Cutlet

Sweet Potato Cutlet | Sweet Potato Patty | Sarkaraivalli Kizhangu Cutlet is a healthy snack prepared with sweet potatoes in combination with some spice powders. The sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, beta carotene, etc. So it is a healthy vegetable which can be included in our regular diet.

My husband  and I like to have these boiled potatoes for morning breakfast but my son never likes them that way. So I used to play around with sweet potatoes, coming out with new dishes to make him eat by hiding it in the dishes which he likes the most. I’ll post the other recipes in due course. I’ve already posted the recipe for  Sweet Potato Gulab Jamun  and I’ve got good feedback from my friends too!
My son’s vacation started only 3 days before and he wanted to have some finger food for the evening snack. I don’t like to order anything from outside since summer has peaked up in Chennai. So I wanted to make something on my own but I didn’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. Suddenly I got an idea of making these yummy cutlets for him.  Once the potatoes are ready, it took only about 15 minutes for the end product. The sweetness of this veggie when combined with little spice and tangy with a dip of tomato sauce…mmm… it tastes heavenly J! We enjoyed a lot..
