Sweet potatoes aid in balancing digestion, and helps in maintaining water levels in the body. It boosts immunity and provides relief from arthritis and bronchitis. This variant is also good for patients of diabetes. It is low in calorie and very high in Vitamin D, making it perfectly nutritious and tasty.
To make your own batch of sweet potato crisps, wash the sweet potatoes well and make sure to rinse off dust and dirt from it. Without peeling the skin away, chop it into slices or wedges, whatever you are in the mood for. Allow it to soak in water for some time. This will ensure they came out crispy.
Take it out and spread each slice evenly on a baking tray. Drizzle some olive oil over it and sprinkle some garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Chef Rakhee also sprinkles some fresh rosemary.
Switch to baking instead of frying for a healthier touch. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees and allow the fries to bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Once you take it out, add some chaat masala and red chilly powder over it. You can also add your favourite cheese and enjoy it your favourite dip.
