Sweet Potato Cutlets/ Fasting Recipe/Vrat-Upvas Food


Cutlets are delectable snacks which are prepared by combining various veggies to add some binding agent. These are soft inside but crisp and crunchy outside. This crunch comes by deep frying or shallow frying them. Potatoes are the key ingredients to any type of cutlets. They act as a binding agent too. Not only this if they are not deep fried, are a healthier option to get a no of nutrients. I have added sweet potato to these cutlets with potatoes and a few aromatics. Sama flour is added to bind them instead of cornflour. This flour is non-starchy and gluten-free. These cutlets provide you with a good option to consume in upvas/fasting or vrat days



Sweet potatoes are considered SuperFood these days. This wonder ingredient is a starchy root vegetable that is rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. They’re also high in antioxidants that protect your body from free radical damage and chronic disease.
