Sugared Sweet Potato Chips (slices) /Meetha Shakkariya Ni Katran is a very easy to make sweet for any day. The sweet potato slices are cooked with ghee, sugar and flavored with cardamom powder. The trick is to add the sugar after the sweet potato is cooked to give it a nice caramalised taste and texture. Usually the dish is made during vraat or upwaas and is gluten free. But it can be enjoyed for any occasion.
I love this recipe a lot. My mom (Rekha Ramolia) makes it frequently when she is fasting. You can cook this recipe with white sweet potato or purple sweet potato. You can cook with the regular potato or carrot or beet root. You can add honey in place of sugar too. But always add sugar at the end and then cook in open pan for 5 minutes till sugar melts and coats well with the slices and then let it caramalised by cooking till the slices are golden and brown.
Sugared sweet potato chips (slices) served in the farali platter as a sweet dish or side dish.
