Instant Sweet Potato Bread | Sweet Potato Sandwich | Masterchefmom's Tiffin Box Ideas 2018

Instant Sweet Potato Bread

Hi Supermoms,

New school session has started and it is time for all of us to wear our  creative hats 😇. I always believe in packing food that is not only healthy and also eye appealing. Bread is hugely popular at home and sweet potato is not that popular. Considering how energy rich the vegetable is, I wanted to experiment with sweet potato and it turned out so delicious. 

Sweet Potato, Banana, jaggery, milk , dates and nuts all make the filling so yummy. So easy to put together and takes less than 20 minutes to pack the tiffin box.  You can be creative with the shapes if you are packing for your younger ones.  If you are packing for teenagers, you can just cut the sandwich  into wedges . 

Also, you can make a savoury or a chaat version of this bread by adding chaat masala , salt and lemon juice to the mashed sweet potato. Add in the nuts and your filling is ready. You can customise the filling according to your family preference. 

It can be a great breakfast or after school snack too.
