  • Sweet potato: 2 nos (medium sized)
  • Bengal gram flour: 1 cup
  • Egg white: Of two eggs
  • Coconut oil: As per requirement
  • Coriander leaves and curry leaves: Finely chopped (2-leaflets)
  • Salt: As per taste
  • Corn flour: 2 tablespoons

How to prepare

Peel the sweet potatoes and finely slice them into rounds. In a bowl, add gram flour, egg whites, coriander and curry leaves, salt and corn flour and prepare the batter.
