ratalyachyo nevryo are sweet potato turnovers.....
This is my hubby's favorite sweet, usually his sister gets these whenever she comes visiting and she is a expert at making them.
i dont make them very often , but this sunday i had time and these being the navratri days ,where you find several ladies fasting for 9 days . sweet potatoes are one of the items that a fasting person is allowed to eat, so you see a lot of sweet potatoes in the market..
This sweet is usually made in goa , i learnt it from my sister in law.
1/2 Kg sweetpotatoes boiled
1/4 cup flour
pinch of salt
1. 2 cups of grated coconut.
2.1 cup grated jaggery or as per taste
4.a little ghee about 1 tsp.
mash the sweet potatoes with a little salt , add the flour to it till you get a soft dough ball
for the stuffing :
take a heavy bottom pan and add all the ingredients stir till you get a even mass
take a ball of the sweet potato dough between two sheets of plastic
apply a little oil on the ball and roll
keep the stuffing on the rolled out sweetpotato and cover from one side
press the edges
take a griddle or tawa pour a little ghee on it and place the nevryo on it
turn it on either sides till you get brown spots on it as shown in the picture.
you can eat it with ghee or plain.
