Sweet potato - 2
salt - 3/4 tsp
red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
cumin - 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Extra virgin olive oil - 2 to 3 tbsp
Scrub and peel the sweet potatoes. Rinse and wash thoroughly to remove any dirt.
Cut it into thick strips (thinner ones get brown and charred easily).
Add all the other ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mix well.
Then put the sweet potato wedges and mix well.
Spread them on a cookie sheet without touching each other. I needed 2 trays.
Heat oven to 350 deg and bake for 20 minutes. Take out, check , toss using a spoon and bake again for nearly 10 minutes. Broil for 1 minute.
Be careful throughout the process, as the sugar in sweet potato makes it char quickly.
Baked sweet potato fries is ready!
Serve with tomato ketchup as snack or side dish.
Sweet potato fries or baked fries would never taste like potato French fries. So don't set the expectations like that.
This is a softer version of chips, tastes unique, sweeter and good.
