Here is another good sweet potato variant for tasty food that qualifies as a fasting diet! Kachrya means thin slices. Yam in thin slices is tossed with dried fruit, grated coconut etc in clarified butter and then cooked and then dipped in thick sugar syrup. It is a delicious and nutritious addition to a fast. A hot version in which the slices are sprinkled with samo rice and then fried in oil with red chilli powder and rock salt is also possible.
