Masala Sweet Potato Fries

THESE SWEET POTATO FRIES ARE CRISPY AND DELICIOUS WITH THE PERFECT INDIAN MASALA KICK!

They go great as a side for so many different meals and are delicious as a snack. They go well with a variety of dips like chutney, tahini, raita, and Ri’s chili sauces.

These sweet potato fries take things up a notch – generously seasoned with chaat masala (an Indian seasoning that combines spices like pepper, cumin, chili, and dried mango powder). The blend creates a hot and sour flavor that will keep you reaching for more!

We love these fries paired with:

ENJOY!

  5. Dry the potatoes well with a paper towel and add them into a large bowl along with oil and seasoning.
  6. Give it a good mix (hands work best)!

  8. Serve hot with a sauce of your choice.
