It is one the high-calorie starch food and I first started sampling this food when before the long runs, preferring it over the humble potato. This recipe is definitely the spotlight of a party.

The Amazing Amla Sweet Potato Snack
Why not sweet potato? It is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin E & beta carotene. It also has a decent source of Vitamin C, Potassium, and folate. So when I first come across this recipe, I instantly became a fan. The recipe includes Oats, capsicum & carrots, all of which are high on fiber and nutrients.
The twist that we are looking for is using Amla powder, which when added to any dish can multiply the nutritional content. High on Vitamin C, Iron and Zinc, it is a great immunity booster and we all remember taking Chyawanprash as kids. Added to this veggie delight, it gives a unique Amla taste, which slightly sour. The bitter part of Amla gets subdued with the sweetness of the Sweet Potato.
The other twist that recipe has is the addition of oats in place of flour to bind the structure. Oats again is rich in fiber and high on energy (making this whole preparation a great natural energy provider if you are going for a heavy workout the next day.) The addition of capsicum and carrots add to the flavor, along with cumin powder.
Here's how you make it...
3 large Sweet potato (400 gms)
1/2 cup Oats
1/2 capsicum grated
1/2 carrots grated
2 tbsp Good Lyfe Amla Superberry Powder
1 tbsp Paprika
1 tbsp Cumin powder
Olive Oil or Coconut oil for shallow frying

Cook Sweet potato by boiling until they are soft. Peel the skin and mash it without lumps.
Mix all the ingredients together, mixing them evenly to form a dough.
Take a large lemon sized sweet potato dough, make a smooth ball and flatten it to form discs. Avoid making thick, as it would leave the center uncooked. Also, ensure that there are no cracks.
