Indian Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

These are delicious and healthy. You can use the yellow sweet potatoes or orange yams. My favorite way to serve these is with Mango Chutney Barbeque Sauce for dipping. The recipe is for 1 sweet potato, so if you want to make more just add more spices. You should use one large baking sheet per potato to make sure they won't be crowded, otherwise they'll turn out mushy rather than crispy.

This batch was made with 2 large yams.
1 large sweet potato or yam, peeled and sliced into thin fries (try to get one that's short and fat)
Extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. garam masala
1/4 tsp. corriander

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly oil it and set it aside.

2) Peel the sweet potato, slice it into thin slabs, and then cut the slabs into thin fries.

3) Place the sweet potatoes into a large bowl and toss with a little olive oil and the spices, making sure to distribute the spices and oil evenly on the fries.

4) Place the fries evenly about on the prepared baking sheet. Bake them for 15 minutes and then toss them with a spatula. Bake for another 5-7 minutes or until they are starting to become crispy and just starting to blacken at the very edges, be careful not to burn them.

 Use one sweet potato or yam for 1-2 people, and one tray per yam.
