Sweet potatoes make incredible fries. They’re so good a lot of kids prefer them over regular potato fries.
Yield: Makes 4 servings
2 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
2 sweet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch wedges
Put salt, brown sugar, cinnamon and chili powder into a small jar and shake to combine.
Preheat an electric fryer to 375 degrees. Add sweet potatoes and fry until golden and crispy. The oil temperature will drop a bit, 365 degrees is ideal. Immediately toss the crispy sweet potatoes with a spoonful or two of the seasoned salt.
In India, aloo gobi means “potato cauliflower”: it’s one of their most common vegetable dishes. It’s one of my family’s favourites too, partly because it’s so easy to make, but mostly because it’s full of so much addictive bright flavour. It’s normally made with plain white potatoes and cauliflower, but, for even more colour, flavour and nutrition, this version uses sweet potatoes instead.
Sweet potatoes are a superfood. They’ve earned this title by being so packed with nutrients, ounce for ounce, that they’re just plain nutritionally dense. Quite simply, they’re one of the single healthiest foods you can bring to your table. Tasty and easy too. Especially with the bright flavours of curry and ease of canned chickpeas. For this recipe simply toss everything together, toss into the oven, then sit back and wait for the compliments!
