Prawn makes anything taste better.An appetizing,crispy,spicy and lightly sweet cutlets with seamless combination of spices which is relevant with a cup of hot tea.Here you can easily substitute the sweet potato with potatoes if you don’t like it’s sweetness.
First time i’m trying Sweet Potato in spicy version.Always i ate steamed one with coconut milk and some sugar that too from India.I never picked it from here. This one hubby bought,that too many of them and i have no idea what can i make with it!Hehe!He said to batter fry it after i made this one.Still one more left so i should try it for him.I know it’s sweet and we both don’t like sweet taste in spicy food.I will manage some how but he noway!!
I love to experiment appetizers / finger food.I started cooking with the snacks and desserts.I used to enter the kitchen when its calm and quiet that is when everyone is napping after the lunch!hehe!Then make something that i can do for the evening snacking!
