  • Add the mashed sweet potatoes to this and knead into a soft dough.
  • Add oil and continue to knead until the dough is soft and not sticky.

  • If required, add more flour or a few drops of water to get the consistency required.
  • Keep the dough covered for at least 30 mins.
  • Divide the dough into even lemon sized balls. Using flour for dusting roll them out evenly as thin as you like.
