We know it is natural to associate only potatoes with the word ‘Fries’ but here, in a little experiment, we discovered that sweet potatoes make great Fries too!

Sweet potato fingers are deep-fried and then tossed with a dash of spice powders to get a perfectly crisp sweet-and-spicy snack.

It is also quite convenient to make as you do not have to parboil the sweet potatoes – you can just directly fry them. But remember that they cook much faster than potatoes when deep-frying, so keep an eye on each batch and remove them as soon as they are done.

Serve the Masala Sweet Potato Fries immediately after preparation, to enjoy their unique taste and lovely texture.

You can also try your hand at other sweet potato treats like Sweet Potato Khichdi , and Sweet Potato and Sesame Croquettes .

We always make french fries out of potatoes and when I tried this recipe, it was surely different and taste great. The chatpata masala makes this recipe worth a try !!
