Sweet Kand Puri is a quick and easy recipe that will keep your tummy happy on a fasting day without breaking any rules!

Kand or purple yam is a winter root veggie, which arrives conveniently during the Maharashtrian month of Margashis, when fasting for five Thursdays is said to please Goddess Parvathi and bring good luck, happiness and prosperity to married couples.

To keep yourself satiated and energetic even when you fast, you can take these energy-packed Sweet Kand Puris. Simple yet delicious, these puris made of sweet kand and rajgira flour have a mild sweetness, which is very enjoyable.

You cannot roll these puris with rolling pins. You have to press slightly with your fingertips. It is a bit difficult, but you will get it right with a bit of practice.
