Sweet potato sabzi recipe (How to make sweet potato sabzi)

The ingredients used here are allowed during Navratri vrat, ekadashi or any other religious fast. So this sweet potato sabzi can be consumed. In my childhood, my mom used make this sabzi for me during gauri vrat.

At home I make this very often. Whenever I make methi thepla, I must make this sabzi or sukhi bhaji to go with it. I also serve a bowl of yogurt on side. This meal will appear in my home once in two weeks.

It has nutty flavor from sesame seeds, peanuts and coconut. Addition of cashew nuts is optional.

There are no spice powders used, still it tastes really good. The spicy flavor comes from the green chilies only. So adjust the amount accordingly.

Serving suggestion:
– If making sweet potato sabzi during navratri vrat or any other upavas, serve with rajgira puri, singhare ki puri or rajgira paratha.
– If making on regular days then you can serve with roti/phulka.
– Because of the sweet potatoes, it has slight sweet taste. So at home we love to eat with methi paratha or methi thepla. Slight bitterness from methi and slight sweetness of this sabzi will balance the flavor.
