Sweet Potato Curry / Genas Karimbdh / Palya

This is very common dish. This recipe can be made as a sweet curry as well as a bit spicy curry. My Grandmother used to burn this "Sweet Potato" on the fire and she used to peel off the skin and give the potato to us. Its very tasty to eat just like that. This I had made for my son because he doesn’t eat sweet dishes a lot, so i had made a bit spicy version of that . Try it out.

  • Genasu / Sweet Potato - 2 Cups, Chopped
  • Oil - 2 tsbn
  • Mustard Seeds / Kadag - 1/2 tsp
  • Split Bengal Gram / Kadal parppu - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida / Hing - A pinch
  • Red Chillies - 2
  • Curry leaves - 4 or 5
  • Grated Coconut - 4 tspn
