Sweet Potato

Sweet Potato is one of my childhood favorite. Recently I saw Japanese sweet potato while shopping and decided to pick it up. I had a wonderful weekend with my fond childhood memories of sweet potatoes. It is a wonderful option for breakfast or evening snacks. Simple & easy to cook.


Ingredients:
Sweet Potato : 6 nos medium size
Salt : To taste

Preparation:
  1. Wash and clean the sweet potatoes well.
  2. Boil sweet potatoes in a pressure cooker with enough water and salt to taste.
  3. Wait for one whistle and turn off the flame and wait till the pressure is relieved.
  4. Take out the sweet potatoes, peel off the skin and cut into round pieces.
Alternatively you can use a wide opened vessel to boil the sweet potatoes. Turn off the flame when the sweet potatoes are cooked well.
