Recipe Notes

  • You can also roast sweet potatoes in an oven if you like the flavor.
  • However, I prefer boiling them as it’s really quicker as compared to roasting.
  • You can use regular salt if you are not making this tikkis for Vrat or Fasting.
  • I prefer pan-frying, you can also deep fry this sweet potato tikkis.
  • Serve this tikkis hot with Vrat chutney, if you are making it for Vrat, else you can also serve with any dip or tomato ketchup.
  • You can add more spices like dhania powder, red chili powder, garam masala if you are not making this tikkis for Vrat.
  • I have not used any flour to bind the tikkis, however, you can use Rajgira flour or Samo flour that can be consumed during fasting.
