Sweet potatoes contain almost twice as much fiber as other types of potatoes. The high fiber content gives them a “slow burning” quality. This basically means their caloric energy is used more slowly and efficiently than a low-fiber carbohydrate
- 2 Tablespoons seasoned salt
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2tsp paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon cumin
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- 2 tbsp Corn starch/flour
For the Fries:
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil/cooking oil
- Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut off the ends. With a very sharp knife, cut the potatoes into thin slices about 1/4 inch wide.
- Cut into even thin pieces. The more evenly thick you can cut them, the more even they will bake.
- Put them in a bowl of water and let them soak for about 20 minutes.
- Rinse well and then thoroughly pat them dry with paper towel. Make sure you get as much water off as you can.
- Combine seasoning ingredients in a small bowl along with corn flour and set aside.
- Next put them in a Ziploc bag with 1-2 tsp of oil and seasoning then shake to coat.
- Line a baking sheet with foil, and place a cooling rack on top of it. Lay the potatoes on the cooling rack so that they are not touching.
- Bake at 200 degree C (Fan assisted) for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Seasonings can be personalised a s per the taste.
