Vegan Sweet Potato Murukku/Sakkaravalli Kizhangu Murukku

I have tried couple of Chaklis aka murukkus with different grains, root vegetables and even with spinach, but still i have some root vegetables to cook and dish out some savouries with. Hence i opted for Sweet potato. Sweet potato is an incredible root vegetable which is quite versatile to dish out many fantabulous sweets, bakes and many more fabulous dishes out of it.  Since its diwali, i cant  think more than making some chaklis aka murukkus with this excellent root vegetable. Initially i was bit skeptical to try as sweet potatoes as these root vegetables tends to be sweet. However my creative mind was very much tempted to give a try this sweet potato murukku hence i tried my hands with this combination.

With mild sweetness and spiciness, trust me these murukkus tastes absolutely delicious and everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly munching this incredible deep fried beauties. You might have know that varieties of sweet potatoes do exists, the one i used for making this chaklis were bit orange in colour hence the murukkudough was bit orange in colour else nothing makes in this murukkus different from other varieties of murukkus do exists. If you want to try a new version of murukkus, dont forget to give a try to this absolutely crispy beauties for the upcoming festivals of lights.
