Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

When I was a kid, amma used to make us french fries for our after-school snack. Those were days when we indulged in all kind of oily and fatty foods without a second thought. But these days whenever I think of frying something, my first concern would be the family's health. Can I afford frying something for the in-laws without any concern of their age and so, I just try to restrain me from deep frying anything whenever I can.

An occasional fry tempts me and the huss but when I find an alternate option to that and suggest it, he usually opts for the healthier version. So when I made these baked sweet potato fries for our weekend tea-time, I was glad to see him happily munching on these.

~*What U Need*~
Sweet potatoes - 2(medium)
Olive Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Italian seasoning - 1/2 tsp


How I Made it:
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes as desired. The thinner, the crunchier. Preheat oven to 220 C. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, keep aside. Mix all ingredients till the potatoes are evenly coated. Arrange the fries in a single layer on the baking pan.
Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove, turn the pieces over and bake for another 10 mins.

Serve with ur favorite dip!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
