Sweet Potato Fries.

Sweet potatoes fries are fried dish and you can munch them with a cup of hot coffee or tea. You can have them with your lunch or dinner also. As always it is easy to prepare.

I just fried thin cut sweet potatoes. And then added little chilly powder and salt.
Some pieces are dipped in besan and rice flour combination with spices and salt.
One more variety is that fried bajji/fritters are served with corn, cucumber, carrot salad. The salad is coated with chat masala and the combination is yummy.
Eating fried dishes is always fun. Hot chips or any fritters during the rainy day make us to munch more and more. It is said the body needs some oiling during rainy season and winter. Do not feel guilty. Eat them and have a good walk or some exercise later.
Lets see the munchy crunchy sweet potato recipe and get ready to prepare hot fries.

Things Needed :

Sweet potato : 1 (Big one)
Channa/besan flour : 1 Cup (small)
Rice flour : 1 cup (small)
Red chilly powder : 1 Teaspoon
Jeera/ Cumin seeds : 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt : required
Oil : 1 Cup (to fry)


1. Wash and remove the outer layer of the sweet potato. Wash it again and cut into small thin slices and keep it aside.
2. Take a big bowl and put besan / channa flour, rice flour and salt.
3. Add red chilly and jeera to the flour mixture. Mix it well and add little water and make as thick dough. (dough consistency should be like idli dough).
4. Keep frying pan on the fire Heat and put oil. Let it get hot.
5. Now dip each slice (pieces) of sweet potato and coat them with the dough and put them in the hot oil. Let the flame be medium.
6. Let to cook till golden brown and turn them to the other side and cook for 1 minute.
7. Put them on the kitchen sheet. Let the extra oil go off.

 8. Serve hot Sweet potato bajji.fritters with ketch up. We had it with Carrot, cucumber and corn salad.
Salad preparation : Wash and grate carrot, cut cucumber into small pieces. Take a bowl and mix corn , grated carrots, and slightly boiled corns. Mix it well and add little salt and a pinch of chat masala powder. Mix it well. Arrange the bajji according to your wish and serve. 

Note :

Wash the sweet potato thoroughly. Cut them in to thin pieces. Let the oil be hot. Fry them on medium flame. Adding garlic is optional.
Remove the husk and the skin of garlic and just pound it or crush it or cut into thin pieces. No need add any oil to the dough. Adding rice flour not only gives the crispness to the bajji. Adding cooking soda is optional. I have not added any garlic or oil to the dough.
20 to 30  pieces can be prepared 
Time : 20 Minutes.
