  1. Make sure sweet potatoes are cooked well else it will be difficult to mash or grate.
  2. This sweet potato chapati (thepla) is naturally sweet so adjust the spices accordingly.
  3. You can add green leafy vegetables like finely chopped spinach or methi (fenugreek leaves).
  4. You can also add some grated carrots or beets for this paratha
  5. I have prepared this sweet potato roti without adding any sugar or jaggery. If you like you can add a little bit of jaggery/sugar.
