Fire Roasted Yam/Sweet Potato





Fire roasted Sweet Potato/Yam:
This is one of the most delicious cold wintery snack that is very healthy and equally filling...
For roasting directly under fire, you can use your fire place if you have one..This is a great way to enhance the flavour in your sweet potato. Another way of roasting is using charcoal. Place the sweet potato on heated coal for 15 minutes, toss it every 3-4 minutes to make sure the skin is getting charred and its heating equally on all sides..

To serve:
remove the charred skin which comes of very easily. Once fully done, the potato cuts like butter and yet retains its shape without breaking down. I generally serve this with rock salt and pepper or with honey..
Tip: You can mash this and use it for making raita, its an excellent accompaniment with any dish..
