Sweet potatoes, though called potatoes, are only a distant relative of regular potatoes. They are commonly marketed as “yams” in North America to differentiate them from the firmer white potato even though they belong to a completely different family than the actual “yam” (native to Africa and Asia). When compared to other vegetables in terms of fiber and nutrition, the sweet potato ranked highest in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene (a vitamin A equivalent nutrient), vitamin C, and vitamin B6. With that said, take the sweet potato to a flavor high point with the super easy and healthy Sweet Potato Chaat recipe. Serve it as an appetizer or a side salad — the perfect Indian spin on nature’s perfect vegetable.
