If I can throw in some lentils or vegetables in that mix, all the better. These sweet potato cutlets came out of that experimentation. Lil A likes his "alu bhaja" so I thought it will translate well to "orange alu bhaja" too. Not so. So I decided to take route #2 - cutlets.
These sweet potato cutlets are the easiest thing and are sized just right for little kids. I let the sweet potato bake in the oven with the spices. Mix it all together and shallow fry them. The adults loved it, and Lil A tentatively finished one. I can live with that!
How do you use sweet potato for your little ones? Here's another recipe I made with sweet potato for Lil A - sweet potato biscuits.
2 sweet potato - peeled and cubed
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 tspoon cumin seed powder
1/4 tspoon fresh black pepper
salt to taste
4-5 tbspoon oil
Preheat the oven to 375deg. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes. Add about 2 tbspoon oil, salt, cumin seed powder, black pepper and salt and bake it for 40-45 min till the sweet potatoes are cooked.
