Sweet Potato Roast

Since sweet potatoes are sweet in nature we normally we don't make a roast with it, we just pressure cook them and eat it and it tastes really good. But since sweet potatoes are very healthy, I was looking to include it in my kids diet and decided to make a roast out of it as they normally love potato roast.

To mask or cut down the sweetness of this veggie, you will have to add a bit more masala to it and even then some sweet potatoes are too sweet and you cannot mask it's sweetness. Some sweet potatoes are mildly sweet and this roast tastes really good when made with those ones. My husband refused to eat it as he felt the roast was still sweet!! But my kids and me enjoyed it!!
