Baked sweet potatoes

P2012_10-08-10 1 

I love anything and everything potatoes be it chips, fries, salads, pies, samosas, parathas, you name it!

Unlike the regular aloos, sweet potatoes are really sweet and orange/yellow in color. Suitable for sweet desserts I guess. Sweet potatoes are said to have a low glycemic Index, somewhat like basmati rice. Sugar is released over a period of time in our body unlike other starchy food. Meaning it's healthier to munch on sweet potatoes than the regular fries :D

These are extremely simple to prepare. A couple of sweet potatoes cut into strips, spread them out on a baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, you can add other herb of your choice too. Drizzle some olive oil over them and bake at 200C until the potatoes are golden brown orange. Don't forget to turn them every 10 minutes or so to have evenly browned oranged potato strips.

Sweet, crispy, yummy snack! Dip them in tartar sauce if you are feeling evil ;)
