Ratala Puri ~ Sweet Potato Puri

BM #63 Day 18 - 

A special note for new comers to this space. BMers, a group of enthusiastic bloggers are running a month long marathon and I have chosen to blog recipes in the alphabetical order, A-Z from the Maharastrian cuisine.

The letter R is featured today and it was a breeze as my friend was quick to come up with this. I cooked up a full meal on a single day featuring Chavlichi Bhaji, Easy Masale Bhat and Ratala Puri along with yogurt.

A recap of the series..

Amti with Drumstick - Day 1

Bhopada (Laal) Ki Sabji - Red Pumpkin Curry - Day 2

Goda Masala - Day 7

Harbhara Ki Sabji - Day 8

Onion Ki Sabji - Day 15

Recipe Source Shalaka
Ingredients - 

Sweet Potato 1 Big (I used the Purple Indian Variety)
Wheat Flour 2 cups
Salt 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1/2 cup (or more if preferred)
Oil to deep fry

Ratala Puri ~ Sweet Potato Puri

Method Of Preparation -

Chop the sweet potato into big pieces, steam them. Peel and mash the sweet potatoes.

To the mashed potatoes, add salt and sugar and mix well.

Add wheat flour to the mashed sweet potato mixture to knead a stiff dough. I used up approximately 2 cups of flour. Make sure not to add any liquid.

Pinch lime sized portions of the dough, roll into discs and set aside under cover.

Heat oil until sample dough when put in it rises to the top immediately.

Gently slide the rolled out disc and make sure it puffs out in the oil. Fry on both sides and remove onto paper towels to drain excess oil.

Continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve them as a dessert or a snack.
