Sweet Potato - Oats - Fritters

Sweet Potato provides a good amount of vital minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, mananese and potassium that are exxential for enzyme and carbohydrate metabolism.
Here I have tried Sweet Potato Fritters. This fried item is good for snack or as starter in the party occasion.

Sweet Potato Fritters will be liked by all age group and it will be easy and quick to prepare.

Things Needed:

Sweet Potatoes: 2 to 3 (edium sized)
Green chilly : 2 to 3
Oats: 2 Tablespoons
Beaten Rice (Awalakki or awal) : 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves: 3 to 4 Tablespoons
Garam Masala Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Jeera: 1 Teaspoon
Ginger: 1/2 Teaspoon (grated)
Bread slices: 4
Oil : 1 Cup
Salt : to taste.
Cashew nuts : 2 Table spoons.

Method :

1. Boil sweet potato and keep it aside. (You can use the pressure cooker to boil sweet potato)
2. Roast Oats for 2 to 3 minutes and leave it for cooling.
3. Powder the bread slices.(do not use water, just powder it by using hand)
4. Wash and cut coriander leaves, grate ginger and keep it aside.
5. Remove sweet potato outer skin when it is cooled and keep it aside.
6. Take a big bowl and put peeled sweet potato and smash it nicely.
7. Add powdered bread, roasted oats and Awalakki (Poha) to the sweet potato.
8. Cut cashew nuts in to small pieces.
9. Add salt, cut coriander leaves and cut green chilly, cashew nuts pieces and mix it nicely with sweet potatoes.

10. Prepare a thick dough (consistency should be like chapati cosistency).
11. Keep a frying pan on the stove and heat. Put oil to the pan.
12. Let the oil become hot. Now take a small amount of the sweet potato mixture
13. Pat the dough in between your palm and prepare a shape according ot your wish and fry them one by one.  Serve

14. Prepare the remaining Fritters according to your wish and serve with ketchup or any kind of chutney you like.
Note : You can also shallow fry these fritters on dosa tava using very little oil. But taste differ. You can add ground nuts or cashew nuts and then mix it nicely along with sweet potato. Add water if the dough becomes thick.
Serves :3
Time; 20 minutes. ( Boiling and removing the outer skin of sweet potato should be done in the beginning it self)
