Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I always feel the weekends get over very quickly :). Maybe because we are very relaxed, find more time with the family and friends or visit new places..so time just flies without our knowledge !!Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I like baking and I always prefer baking when it comes to deep fried dishes. Of course, the baked version may not turn exactly like the deep-fried ones.But we can enjoy them guilt-free for sure. I baked the sweet potato fries yesterday, but they didn't turn out very crispy as I thought. Also, the crispiness will be lost if you keep it for long, so serve immediately. Though it didn't turn out to be perfect crispy fries, we still enjoyed them especially my little one.


Ingredients:

(Use any seasoning you prefer. There is no exact measurement, use as per your taste)

1 large Sweet Potato
Red chilli powder
Pepper
Salt
1 tsp Oil


Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and spray some oil.
Peel the sweet potato, wash it and pat dry with a kitchen towel.Now cut it into wedges.
Put these wedges in a bowl. Sprinkle salt, pepper and red chilli powder. Add oil.
Close the bowl with a lid and shake the bowl so that wedges gets coated well.
Now transfer the sweet potato wedges to the tray as a single layer. 
Bake for about 10 minutes. Now slowly turn the wedges to the other side.
Bake again for 8 to 10 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
(Keep an eye on the oven as ovens may vary.)
Serve with tomato sauce.

Serves 2-3
