Sweet Potato Fries


  Sweet Potato also called as Yam in some parts of US does not belong to the Yam family. It’s one of the Top10 Superfoods and high in Potassium (higher content than a Banana), Beta Carotene and Vitamin A.
Sweet Potato is a part of our regular diet. I simply microwave the sweet potato or bake it in the oven. Just for a change, I made it like finger fries that can be eaten with rice or as a snack. 


    Sweet Potato - 2
    Chili powder - 1 tsp
    Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp

    Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
    Cumin seeds    - 1/2 tsp
    Curry Leaves   - few
    Broken Chili    - 1

              Peel and cut the sweet potato lengthwise (2"). Briefly boil the potatoes in salted boiling water and drain it. Keep oil in a pan. Add the seasoning ingredients. Once the seeds splutter, add the parboiled potatoes, chili powder, Coriander powder, hing and salt. Toss it gently and cook the potatoes for few minutes.
