Chettinad Sauteed Sweet Potato

Chettinad Sauteed Sweet Potato

Chettinad Sauteed Sweet Potato is a dry stir fry made with boiled sweet potatoes in a mix of spices that make it get to just snack on or as a side dish.

Sweet Potatoes are delicious just boiled. We mostly enjoy it as such, though during growing up I remember mixing sugar and enjoying as a snack. These days we simply boil it and eat it for the evening snack.

The first time I got to taste this sauteed sweet potatoes was when my colleague got it and she said in her Chettinad cuisine, it is commonly made this way. I asked for the recipe and it was so simple. Even the dish looks very simple yet the taste was amazing.

When I get bored to eat as such, I often make it this way.

We are starting the BM#88, Week 2, where I have been blogging on Regional Cuisines of Indian. I shared from different states and for day 3 it is from Tamil Nadu.

  1. Such an easy dish with simple ingredients, chettinad cuisine is my all time favourite. Am sure this sauteed sweet potato makes a delicious side dish for tangy kuzhambu.

  2. My kids love sweet potato and I make this very often but not the chettinad version. Addition of mustard powder is unique here. Shall try it soon.

  3. Even I love sweet potatoes. The ones we get here have a orangish flesh and that colour is awesome. This simple stir fry looks awesome Valli.

  4. That is such an easy recipe with delicious results….ain’t I lucky that I have 2 sweet potatoes in my fridge right now? Have to try this today!
