Yum Yum!
Yum Yum!

P.S. For those who don't know what Chat Masala is, it's this sooper yummy, tangy spice which you can add to almost everything. It tastes sooper yum sprinkled over apples too.

You can usually find it at any Indian grocery store or you can get it from here on Amazon:

Garam Masala is sort of like curry powder but more pungent. You can find it here:

      Yes Rochelle, it's are pretty much like curry powder but a little more pungent. I have added the links to the spices I used at the bottom, just in case you wanna try them out.

      Looks wonderful delicious and healthful!!

      The sweet potatoes I know are white-- the orange ones look more like the yams I often cook. I'm not sure about masala-- is it like curry powder?
