How to make Curried Sweet Potato Mexican Fajita Recipe

  1. To begin making the Curried Sweet Potato Mexican Fajita Recipe, make sure you have all the vegetables cut and ready. 

  2. Place the cut vegetables into a large bowl. Add vinegar, olive oil, red chili powder, cumin and coriander powders, salt and toss well.

  3. Now spread these vegetables on a large oven proof tray and bake at 200 C for 35-40 minutes. Stir a couple of time half way through, so they get roasted evenly.

  4. Keep an eye on the vegetables from 30 minutes onwards. Take the tray out once you see well roasted wrinkled vegetables and they should be cooked through.

  5. Warm the tortillas on a skillet or a microwave. 

  6. Once done, to assemble the fajitas, place these roasted vegetables over a warmed up whole wheat tortilla. Sprinkle feta cheese, chopped fresh coriander, torn iceberg lettuce leaves. Drizzle some hung curd or greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream and make it into a wrap and serve.

  7. Serve Curried Sweet Potato Fajitas with Spicy Mexican Salsa for a weeknight dinner.
