    I recently got married, and have been looking for recipes online. I had sweet potatoes at home, and decided to look up a recipe. I someone stumbled onto this particular recipe, and it was the best decision I ever made! This recipe is super delicious, I even added some freshly squeezed lemon at the end, to give it some tang! Absolutely loved it! I am punjabi, but this went well with my black eye beans. Thank you for such an amazing recipe, I have a happy husband 🙂
