Sweet potato roast (varuval)

Just like the popular potato fry (urulai kilangu varuval) of Tamilnadu, we can make a roast with sweet potato too. I make this varuval whenever I get some surplus sweet potato.  I am sure you all will love this too.

More sweet potato recipes:

Sweet potatoes hold a special place during Thanksgiving day and comes in sale during that time.($0.49- $0.79 / lb)

Sweet Potato - 1 (200 gm)
coconut / sesame oil - 2 tbspfennel - 1 tsp
red chilly powder - 1 tsp
garam masala powder - 1 tsp
salt - to taste

Peel and cut the sweet potato into small cubes. (I use a vegetable chopper to do this).
Heat oil in a thick bottom wok and add fennel.
After it starts becoming mild red, add the sweet potato and fry for 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat, add salt and cook covered.
After it is cooked and starts turning little crispy , add the chilly powder and masala powder. Again stir till raw smell vanishes (1 minute).
Switch off.
Sweet potato fry is ready!

Serving suggestion:
Serve hot with sambar rice, curd rice, lemon rice
