Course: Snacks
Servings: 1 person

Ingredients

  • 1-2 sweet potatoes
  • oil for frying
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Cut sweet potatoes in thin strips. If they're not cut in long, thin strips then they're not really "French" fries. But since I wanted to arrange the fries in the shape of the sun, I cut some in circular shapes as well.
  • Heat oil in a kadai (wok) on medium-high heat. I used an iron kadai and filled it halfway with oil.
  • To test whether the temperature of the oil is right for frying, place a wooden spatula or spoon in the oil. Bubbles should form and float up towards the surface.
  • Fry for 3-4 minutes, you'll be able to tell when to take them out by their color—not too white, not too brown.
  • Remove the fries from oil and place them on paper tissues so that excess oil is absorbed, and then sprinkle some salt on them.
  • If you are making these fries for older kids, you can also sprinkle some pepper powder.
  • You can serve with tomato ketchup or salsa sauce. Although, they taste great even without any accompaniment.
