Spicy Sweet Potato Fritters / Pakodas

null

At the end of this beautiful year the weather is playing very bad game. Added to it I am down with cold, sour throat and bad cough :( yesetrday whole day it was drizzling and no mood to go out but in the evening I prepared this for my family.

Though my health didnt allow me to have this I am emptying my kitchen as we are travelling to our native place to be with our family on the eve of this new year :) As such there is no much celebration happens in our family but being with them by itself is a celebaration :)

WISHING ALL MY FELLOW BLOGGERS & FRIENDS AND THEIR FAMILY A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
