  3. Add the sliced sweet potato to the pan and toss them gently. Add turmeric powder, salt and rasam powder. Mix everything so that sweet potato slices are well coated.

  4. Keep the flame on low, close with a lid and let it cook over low flame. Mix in between. The mixture should cook from the steam released by it.

  5. When the sweet potato is cooked, sprinkle gram flour and toss gently such that it gets coated well. Add 1-2 teaspoon of oil and let the raw banana pieces get nicely fried on low flame .

  6. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes for all the flavors to absorb. Take off stove and serve hot.
