Sweet Potato Masala Curry

Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious and rich in beta carotene, vitamin c and vitamin B6. Well these are sweetish as the name sweet potato , but trust me these can taste better than  normal potato too.
During my childhood , just a boiled sweet potato by my mom was a snack item as we return from our school in evenings.
In Andhra , There are many recipes one does with this sweet potato, especially sweet potato pulusu( similar to sambar) is very famous.
Here is a simple  process for this sweet potato curry.
