unlike other traditional chutney recipes, there is a bit of preparation for this recipe. the main extra step on this sweet potato chutney is the grating and then sautéing till it gets cooked. the grating part helps the sweet potato to get it cooked faster and the sautéing part helps to get rid of the raw taste. previously i use to make this chutney without cooking it and grounding it till fine paste. i never had any complaints as such, but once i started making this way, i never went back. all the raw taste and flavour of sweet potato is gone and does not need any extra seasoning of oil or ghee when mixed with rice. the oil helps to improve the taste and also removes the raw taste but not essential for this recipe.
