  • Put turmeric powder and mix well.
  • Reduce the stove to simmer and cover with a lid.

  • When the sweet potatoes are cooked 3/4th and roasted well, open the lid and add salt.

  • Cover again, maintain the same low heat and roast further for 5 more minutes to cook the spices.

2) Always check whether the potatoes are cooked before adding salt. The addition of salt at the earlier stage makes cooking slower.
