Sweet Potato Bajji/Sakkaravalli Kizhangu Bajji

Evening snacks are always special at home and most of the time evening snacks means deepfried foods for many of us. My kids loves deep fried pakodas or bajjis for their evening snacks but i try to skip those fried foods and try to feed them with more fruits and wholegrains. Lil one was pestering me to make some bajjis since few days, eventhough i dont like making fried foods for their snacks i couldnt resist to his naughtiness and finally prepared some bajjis with sweet potato as i ran out of usual potatoes. Trust me, these crispy fluffy bajjis came out simply awesome and the sweetness of sweet potato tastes absolutely incredible.Just serve with some spicy coconut chutney, am sure your evening snacks will definitely rock.


For this week's blogging marathon,i chosed evening snacks as this week's theme and today is the third day of blogging marathon hence am posting these addictive, deep fried sweet potato bajjis. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#40.
