Healthy Veal Schnitzels with Sautéed Garam Masala Sweet Potatoes Recipe

This recipe is simple but very tasty. The meat was so tender and juicy. The sweet potato was so comforting with nice little crispy bits. I love adding the garam masala sprinkled over the top it just gives it that extra tastiness. If you are after a quick tasty healthy dinner then this is perfect.
