SUN DRIED SWEET POTATO ROUNDS (Genasina Happala, Shakkarkhand Papad)

Congrats!!!!!! to all...... on the last few moments of this year....... Good or Bad.... It has passed..... And the new has already arrived in few parts of this world.....Very beautifully welcomed, as I saw in the news...... At Australia & New Zealand..... Beautiful Fireworks......Oh! how splendid & colorful it all looked.....

All awaiting the new year, with lots of new hopes & aspirations..... in, to & from life .....

Hoping to see a better year..... minus all the bad that we faced this year.......

The recession...that led to the downfall of most of the small business... self employed..... The ever increasing cost of living...... which only sees the rich getting richer & the poor getting poorer..... & the middle class...not knowing where they are heading to...... may be the drains....
Many sad demises, some very close to heart...... some big names around..... some failures..... leading to sadness & drifts...... & many more....

Hoping to see the best...... with accounts prospering..... success to see further success.....peeps discovering the wealth of health, love & care, mistakes realized & set to correction......the newly weds expecting new births..............& many more..........

I personally pray to God, to help me retain all the good that I have & wanted, for me & my family............ God Bless!!!!!

Let us here at BLOGGYWOOD....... celebrate & build more & more cheer readers...... that keeps this part of our lives, LIVELY & ENTHUSIASTIC........... I would love to take this opportunity to thank all my new friends from Bloggywood...who are indeed a part of me now..... & hope to see many more.... in the days to come......


This time when dad went to Puttur, he found the sweet potato produce, going waste..... He thought of getting it into a good use.... As my aunt is allergic to it & my dad cannot eat them, as he is diabetic, he thought of a tea time snacky prep out of them....... That was the best, he
thought out of the produce going waste..... No doubts!!!!


Sweet Potato (ಗೆಣಸು, शकरकंद) - 1 kg
Salt to Taste
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida (Heeng) powder - 1/2 tsp
Small Plastic Sheets - 2
Mat or Big Polythene sheets (to dry the papads)


Wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly & steam cook. Once done, peel off the skin. Now grind the pulp in a mixer grinder without water, fine, as to get a soft & smooth paste. Then, empty the ground mixture into a wide mouthed vessel, oil your hands & knead the paste,
with all the above mentioned ingredients except oil...... into a soft dough (Consistency of a roti dough) Now make small lemon sized balls.

Then press or roll these small balls in between two slightly oiled, stiff plastic sheets, into thin rounds, with the help of a rolling pin.

Do not lift these rolled out rounds, with bare hands..... Just place them onto the sheet or mat, that would be used to dry these papads on.......& remove the plastic slowly, once the rolled round is placed on that sheet. Allow it to sun dry for minimum two days...... (Best under the scorching sun).

Then collect them & store in an airtight container, to be used for days to come.

Sweet Potato Papad

Deep fry them as & when needed, & enjoy..... For those who are oil conscious, you can just place them in the microwave for 30 seconds....... & enjoy them oil free ......

Sweet Potato Papad

It is a good Tea Time Snack..... And this goes to the
WYF:Tea time snack event announcement, held by Simple Indian Food........ I know this would be a last minute entry..... but better late than never...... I guess!!!!

tea time snack

Oh! BTW ..... remember those Cups & Mugs, I spoke about in my earlier post..... & my favorite Evening Tea set.????????????


Yes, that was the one...... Yes! It is no more..... I feel sad & sorry for the deceased mug!!!! Who killed it???? Who else..... My love ...... My Kuku , who masters the art of breaking my mugs & cups....... He broke one...few days back.....but I had not come across Malar's Kitchen Mishaps.... then..... If I had I would have captured the mug, rather every bits & pieces of the mug..... Because they were totally shattered around in my kitchen.... We were playing around & accidentally he hit the mug down...... Boooooom!!!!! It went....... but in snap as I was upset then..... After a few days he sent the other of the lovely pair.... on its way to join its soul breaking the handle of it..... What use would it be without the handle.....???? So the other went too....
They would be remembered forever.........May they REST IN PEACE!!!!!!!

But yes, he got me new ones to substitute, those favorites.....


I love these now..... God Bless them.... Know not how long would these last....... !!!!!!!!!!?????

After days of looking around for it, I got to taste the new Maggi Pastas..... I liked both the flavors... Yummy!!!!! I had once tasted the pasta that they served at Domino's Pizza...... but Yuck!!!! I personally did not like them.......

Maggi Pazzta

But this is without to stay..... like their noodles.....the yummy pazzzzzzzta!!!!!!!!

And all said & done, let us all hope for a beautiful tomorrow.......





  1. Those look AMAZING! We don't have a scorching sun here - could they be dried in the house somewhere? Or left overnight in an oven that is on it's lowest setting - perhaps run the oven, turn it off and THEN put them in? I love sweet potatoes and really want to try the recipe.

  34. Ash, I'm very excited because I'm hoping to grow some sweet potatoes this year! So I'll definitely be hanging onto this recipe. In fact, they are in season now and I think I may have a couple in my fridge so I may not have to wait.

    Good idea to take a photo of favorite cups, plates and utensils when you don't know how long they're going to last!

    Best always,
