Steamed Sweet Potato

These are not mango pieces! Its the steamed Sweet potato which is one of my favourite snack. DH does not like any orange coloured (carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato etc.. ) veggies at all! Hence, once in a while I do buy these veggies. Used to cook the sweet potatoes in a pressure cooker or make Sweet potato fries. Recently got to know(from here..) that steaming this root in an idli pot enhances the taste...tried this last week and it was really yummy!

Sweet potato-2

Trim the edges of sweet potato. Cut them into big chunks..
Wash the veggie, and sprinkle some salt on the cut-side pieces.

Heat some water in the steamer, line the plates with thick (wet) paper towel and arrange the sweet potatoes on the plates.
Steam cook it for approximately 20-25 minutes.[time varies according to the size n quantity of the veggie..]
Check the sweet potatoes with a knife. They should be soft, but not mushy. Take them out and let it cool.
Remove the skin...
Cut them into desired shape and enjoy the guilt free evening snack!


  1. மகி எனக்கு ரொம்ப பிடிக்கும் இது வரை இந்த கலரில் எனக்கு கிடைத்ததில்லை

    பார்க்க அசல் மேங்கோ போலவே இருக்கு
    வாயூறுது, நாளைக்கே வாங்கி செய்துடனும்

  2. Just saw your sweet potato fries - looks yum! I have never eaten these because they are not readily available here as far as I know, so I have no idea what they taste like but imagine they are sweet and delicious. Thanks for stopping by to check on me. :) Hope to bounce back soon with the first recipe that works. :)

  5. ஊரில் இப்படி கிடைக்கும்,பார்க்க எனக்கு தூண்டு போட்ட கேரட் போல இருக்கு.அப்படியே துருவி நெய் தேங்காய்ப்பூ சீனி போட்டு எங்க வீட்டில் மாலை ஸ்கூலில் இருந்து வந்தவுடன் தந்த காலம் தான் நினைவிற்கு வருது.
