Ingredients

You will need only one main ingredient that is Sweet Potatoes if you have an Indian kitchen as other spices are usually stocked up.

Sweet Potatoes: You can take any variety, any size. Only adjust the spices and salt accordingly. I have used 2 medium sized sweet potatoes which yield up to 4 servings.

Spices: Turmeric Powder, Red Chilli Powder of the Deggi Mirch variety and Salt. You can also add pepper powder or Garam Masala but I like to keep this simple. These baked sweet potato slices taste very delicious even though there are less spices in this recipe. Some times, less is more!

Optionally,

Rice Flour/All-purpose Flour: If you want to make it crispier, add this to the mix.

Notes

For a crispier version, add 1 tablespoon of rice flour while mixing and bake at 200°C for 10 minutes.
You can try the same recipe with other vegetables like Potatoes, Brinjal, Cauliflower, etc.
You can also shallow fry these but it takes more oil for that so I prefer baking them which uses just 2 tablespoons which makes them better and much less guilt-free to consume.

Tips:

You can shallow fry these as well but it takes more oil for that so I prefer baking them which uses just 2 tablespoons which makes them healthier and guilt-free to consume.

You can mix everything in advance to kind of marinate the sweet potato slices and bake them immediately before serving. Reheat the leftovers by baking again for 4-5 minutes at the same temperature.
