Tawa frying veggies has been my long time wish. I have seen many people tawa frying yam. I made this Sweet Potato Tawa Fry last week and it was a super hit. I somehow feel like making some non-veg as it resembles fish fry. Sweet Potatoes were the best to tawa fry as they get cooked very quickly. They were sweet, spicy, crispy.. Yumm!! I guess this will be on repeat mode for a while. 🙂 All u need is to plan 30 mins for the marinating part, otherwise it can be made in just 15 mins. Check my sweet potato fry recipe too.

Here is the video:



Now to the recipe…

  1. U can add sambar powder instead of chilli powder.
  2. Rice flour helps to get the sweet potatoes roasted well.
  3. Sweet potatoes will get cooked by the time it gets roasted on both the sides. So no need to pre-cook.
