Ratyala che Upasa che Kaap (Stir Fried Sweet Potato)

एकादशी आणि दुप्पट खाशी असं म्हटलं जातं.(It is said that Usually one ends up eating a lot on fasting day.)

Ashadi Ekadashi is considered to be the most austere & sacred of all 24 Ekadashis.If observed religiously,it is said to be most rewarding and granting the virtue gained by the observance of all 24 Ekadashis in the year.

Now I’m really not one of those who can fast…on the name of God,But was tempted to make a fasting dish looking at all the yummy pics posted on social media…

So, here Is my contribution to that over eating, but in a healthy way. Sweet potatoes come with a high nutritional value being a great source of good carbs, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These are filling which might help you in not falling for binge eating during fasting.

This recipe is super quick and pretty simple.

Happy Fasting!
