Spicy Sweet Potato Upma (Kees)
Spicy Sweet Potato Upma (Kees) is a typical Maharashtrian dish, usually served as a snack/meal for religious fasts. It makes for a scrumptious breakfast or tea time snack even on non-fasting days. Shredded Sweet Potato (Kees) is sautéed in Sarda Farms ghee which gives it a rich earthy flavour. It is then cooked with green chilies, cumin & crushed roasted groundnuts to make this quick, appetising snack.

- 3-4 Green chillies, chopped
- 2-3 tablespoons Roasted, crushed groundnuts
- Few coriander leaves for garnish
- ½ teaspoon Sugar (optional)
- Salt to taste
Wash & peel the sweet potatoes.
Grate them using a coarse grater. (Grate them just before they are ready to be used, to avoid them from turning brown)
Heat ghee in a pan. Add the cumin seeds and green chillies. Add the sweet potatoes, stir and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
Sprinkle salt and sugar. Cook covered for 2-3 minutes (timing may change depending on the quality of sweet potatos)
Add the crushed peanuts and stir again. Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves and some lime juice (optional)
