Roasted Sweet Potato makes a good side dish with a bowl of soup and mexican rice. 

The humble sweet potato could not get any better, it tastes so delicious. Loved the idea of grilling it and savouring with rice. 

Mexican cuisine has many delicious dishes as Spanish Rice,  I have tried a couple of them and we loved. Earlier, I have enjoyed soup  as Spicy Chipotle Chili Corn Soup. There are so many yet to cook in my kitchen.

About the event:

It’s Mexican Cuisine at Shhhh Secretly Cooking Challenge Group. The theme for September was suggested by Narmadha of Nams Corner. Narmadha has wide range of recipes, I loved her recently posted condiment Tomato Ketchup. It is ideal to make it at home. My partner for this month was versatile and talented  blogger Anu Kollon and she gave me sweet potato and cumin powder as the secret ingredients. I have prepared this dish. Capsicum and pepper were the ingredients given by me and Anu has prepared this delicious Vegetable Saute for Fajitas. I  have bookmarked her Spring Onion Chutney to make it soon.

 

Ingredients:
2 medium size sweet potato
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 tsp chilli powder

Method: 

  1. Wash the sweet potato, pat dry  and cut into cubes.
  2. Take a bowl, add olive oil and put all the spices into it.
  3. Mix well. Put the cubes into it and keep it aside for ten minutes.
  4. Pre-heat the oven, line a try with parchment paper. Put the sweet potato cubes on it, keep them at a distance from one another. Bake it for five minutes.
  5. Check and again bake for a few more minutes.
  6. Once they are soft and golden in colour, remove and put another batch to bake. 
  7. Serve as a side dish with Mexican rice or any other dish.

Take a tip:

  • Wash it well and cut into cubes, no need to peel the skin. 
  • Two cloves of garlic and lemon juice may be added to it. It will give a good flavour. 
  • The baking time in my Bajaj  was  eight minutes. 
  • Baking time varies, check if it is done properly.

    Loved this guilt free Mexican roasted potatoes, liked the way sweet potatoes marinated in olive oil and in other spices. Can have more without guilt as it is baked.
