Savoury Sweet Potato,Onion Buns/Sakkaravalli Kizhangu Khara Buns

I have been baking with sweet potatoes for a while and everytime anything baked with this incredible root vegetable gives excellent baked goodies. The cooked sweet potato puree works awesome if you want to bake eggless breads,cakes or buns. Sweet potato is one among the versatile vegetables, i love to cook with it quite often. You can dish out varieties of foods with this vegetable and you wont regret dishing out many beautiful dishes. My recent trial with sweet potato is this incredible savoury buns, which sounds almost like the popular khara buns. This buns asks for sauteed onions,green chillies, since i ran out of coriander leaves i have completely skipped it, but still you can add this herbs if you have them. This cute buns makes excellent burgers, or else to make a sandwich with your favourite spread or grilled meat. You can serve these buns to have along with a bowl of warm, comforting soup.However this buns are seriously interesting to have along with your cup of tea with spicy spread or herbed cream cheese.

Just love the flavour of the sauteed onions in this buns. You cant just stop with one bun, when served along with herbed cheese or cream cheese needless to say that you cant keep urself away from this spongy buns. The sweet potato puree will definitely gives a beautiful colour to this buns. Also it gives a mild sweetness to this bread, obviously if you want to increase the spice level, just add more chilly or chilly powder.However if you give a try to this buns,am sure you will make it quite often. Am running the first week of blogging marathon with 'Root Vegetables' as this week's theme. As sweet potato is one among the root vegetables, this spongy, flavourful savoury buns goes to this month's theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#61.
