Sweet potato cutlet recipe

Sweet potato cutlet | sakkara valli kizhangu cutlet recipe with video and step by step pictures. Cutlets are always loved by everyone at my place. Though i make it rarely,but whenever i make, i make Potato cutlet only. Last year, when i posted sweet potato chaat itself, i planned to post the sweet potato cutlet recipe. Finally i tried sweet potato cutlet today and i loved it very much. The sweetness of the potato with the flavor of the spices added, complimented the cutlet so well. I am sure this is a perfect tea time snack for a rainy day evening, along with a cup of hot ginger tea.
     Generally sweet potato cutlet is made during fasting days. But i didn't make it as a no onion no garlic version.
