Ratalyachi Ghari (Sweet Potato Roti) For Roti Mela


  • Sweet Potato(Boiled & Mashed): 1 Cup
  • Shredded Jaggery: 1 Cup
  • Cardamom Powder: 1 tsp
  • Wheat Flour: As required
  • Salt to Taste
  • Oil or Ghee

  • Mix boiled, mashed sweet potato, jaggery, salt, cardamom powder very well so that jaggery will almost dissolve in sweet potato.
  • Then add wheat flour slowly. Mix all ingredients very well. Add wheat flour till you get nice dough. Don't add any water. Knead the dough very well by adding little oil or ghee. Cover this dough with wet cotton cloth. Keep aside for atleast half hour.
  • Then make small ping pong ball size balls. Roll them with rolling pin just like regular roti.
  • Heat tava on gas. Apply some ghee or oil on tava. Transfer roti on tava. Cook roti from both sides on medium flame.
  • Serve this hot roti with warm milk or pickle.


  • Instead of sweet potato you can use rippen bananas, pumkin, potato.
  • Don't use sugar instead of jaggery otherwise roti will become very hard to eat.
  • If you want you can make these roti puri size and dip fry it.
  • These rotis remains good for 7-10 days so these are good for travel.

Hi Trupti, roti looks yum, I have never tried with sweet potato. By the way , thank you for letting me know about the substitution for dry onion powder, iam gonna make it today then:) have lots of onions in my pantry:) ...hey in answer to your query, green split peas is not similar to green moong dal..Green split-peas is I guess the split peas variety of dry green peas (we call it attano in konkani, also called mutter in hindi precisely its the split variety of the dry variety of mutter)
