It is been more than 7 years into the blogging.  Though I am not consistent here, I have been very actively posting recipes in other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. I find Instagram very handy as I deal with phone for taking pictures, editing and posting. As I carry the phone everywhere, I utilize almost all my spare time to write or post the pictures in Instagram. I do not wish to say this as an excuse for writing a blog post here. Instead I am trying to plan my work and try to do a blog post at least once in a week.

So, Starting my goal with a Sweet potato cutlet today which I prepared as an evening snack for my kid. This is a great appetizer and can be served as an after school snack for kids. I have added finely chopped vegetables into it so that kids can not trace it. It is one of the best ways of making the kids to eat vegetables. Now let’s see the recipe.

3) Adjust the spicy level according to the personal preference.
