Open faced taco’s – Kids special. Perfect for little Hands to hold and eat.imagewith Fresh or Left over Phulka  , Sweet Potato  or White Potato topping and dressed it up with Salsa. It’s Dinner at Five for my Kids. Served the Open faced taco’s with Cauliflower florets and Dessert. I buy vegetables every two weeeks . First week I  finish vegetables with less Shelf Life . Next week I cook vegetables like Cabbage , Cauliflower , Sweet Potato etc.  Want to prepare something with Sweet Potato other than fries. I always keep some cooked Beans in refrigerator and Wheat flour dough . If I serve Sweet potato Curry along with Plain Paratha . Hmmm Kids may not like it for Dinner.

                     I have this recipe in my mind for long time. Open faced taco’s without tortilla’s . I prepared Phulka without Oil and topping with Sweet Potato, Green Moong Dal and Spices .  Refrigerate both of them in separate Boxes and it will take less time to prepare Dinner for Kids. While preparing opened faced taco’s drizzle Oil on both sides . So it will Crisp up the taco’s and the topping. When you flip they are Chances that the Sweet Potato topping will fall . So made a quick slurry with flour and Glued the filling to taco. I buy Big bag of Sweet Potatoes and they stay good for a month .

                     Store at Cool room temperature away from Light . If you store in refrigerator , they won’t cook Properly , takes longer time to Cook.Sweet Potatoes are available year round in many countries . They are similar to White potatoes in terms of Calories and Carbohydrates. One medium spud has 400 percent of your daily needs of Vitamin A as well as loads of fiber, Potassium and provide school age children with sizable amounts of their daily vitamins. Correcting Vitamin A deficiency with foods higher in Beta Carotene will restore vision . Source : Health Magazines.

NOTE : The spices and Lime Juice will supress the sweetness from Sweet Potato. You can prepare the topping with Only Sweet Potato or Combination of Sweet Potato and White Potato.
