sweet-potato curry

Sweet potato curry | Sakkari valli kizhangu curry is one my mom makes during pongal festival. The version she makes is with jaggery and will be like a sweet halwa. Though i like that but i can't take it more as i feel it is too sweet for me. This version of making curry like how we make potato curry, i gave for the no onion no garlic recipes supplement, which i did for kungumam thozi.. So Since now the sweet potato is season and also pongal festival is coming up , thought of posting this sweet potato recipe today.

Method:
  • Pressure cook the sweet potato till 2 whistles. Ensure not to cook this too much , else it will be mashed. The best way to cook is wash the sweet potato and keep it inside a vessel and sprinkle little water to this. You can cook this even with rice and dal too. That is it won't get mashed even after 5-6 whistles if u make in this method. If u put directlyi n the cooker it will be mashed soon.
