1 tablespoon garam masala

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

2 tablespoons yogurt

About 1/4 cup/60 ml pineapple juice

1 tablespoon/15 ml chat masala

About 1/2 teaspoon/2 ml salt

  1. Mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl and then add the chickpea flour, garam masala, ginger, salt, cilantro, and yogurt. Mix well and then form into small patties about 2-inches in diameter.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook the patties in batches so they have plenty of room to fry. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden and crispy and cooked through.

For the Mango Chutney:
