Sweet potato rings

I really loved the sweet potato juliennes I made last week.  With the month of Shravan still continuing - I am having to look for different ways of making the same fasting food look exciting and different so that we don't get bored.  At the same time, I wanted to make sure that we were eating enough proteins with the carbs.

Yesterday, I was rushing to go to work and needed to make something quick to take for mu lunch to eat during the shraven fast.  I made this quick and easy to make dish using sweet potatoes.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

2 medium sweet potatoes (this time I used the yellow fleshed ones)
1 tablespoon olive oil
lo salt and black pepper to taste
½ cup of raw cashews and nuts
2 teaspoons lemon juice


1.  Peel and wash the sweet potatoes and cut them into thick round slices.

2.  Transfer them to a microwave dish and spread the oil, lo salt and pepper to the sweet potatoes. 

3.  Add the nuts too and stir well.

4.  Cook in the microwave for 4 minutes and stir.

5. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1 more minute.

6.  Your food is ready to pack in your lunch box.

Tip: If you like your sweet potato rings to be crunchy - you can cook them in the oven ( 15-17 minutes at 190 degress).
