Sweet Potato Paratha with VIDEO

Standard

Sweet Potato Paratha is one such delicious recipe, which made in minutes and also good for lunch box. As they have a sweet taste, it would be liked by most of the kids. I could remember very well during winters; sweet potatoes are available all over the local markets. During Pongal, my mom use to get these sweet potatoes, cook them, peel the skin and we have it as such. It would be yum, but nowadays when I served it the same way my mom served it me, my kids do not want to have it.
