Sweet Potato Wedges

So it was that the guilt conscience pushed me to the edge and warned me sternly not to consume unhealthy junk food. That day paved way for the most delicious healthy finger foods! All we wanted to eat was french fries that day so I replaced potato with the sweet potato and frying with baking and voila an instant crowd pleaser was born.

What you need to make Sweet Potato Wedges (To make for 2)
  • 6 sweet potatoes (size of an egg)
  • Jeera / Cumin seeds / Jeerige - 2 generous tsps
  • Red Chillies - 3 (or as much as required to make it spicy for you)
  • Oil - 2 tsps
Preparation to make Sweet Potato Wedges  (Time : 5 min)
  • Peel and cut the sweet potatoes french fries style.
  • Grind cumin seeds and red chillies to a coarse powder
Method to make  Sweet Potato Wedges  (Time : 20 mins)
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • In a bowl of sweet potato pieces, add in oil and the ground spice and give it a mix.
  • Place spiced sweet potato pieces into a baking tray. Ensure they are in a single layer.
  • Bake for around 20 mins till the sweet potato is cooked through.
  • Serve hot!

My fundas
  • Somehow coffee was a better companion to this than tea.
  • Sweet potato could be substittued with potato if you could deal with the related excesses. 
  • Make the spice as you like it, no set recipe.
