notes:

  • i have used grated sweet potato. but it is not necessary and you can use diced sweet potato while grounding.
  • i used raw sweet potato, optionally, you can use boiled sweet potato while grounding.
  • this chutney can also be served with rice side dish along with sambar and rasam.
  • add a bit of jaggery while grinding to have the sweet and tangy taste for this chutney.
