We're in the process of getting rid of whatever is left in the fridge and pantry, since we will be away for almost 10 days and it'll be a shame if most of our food went to waste. So, I was thinking up recipes for the sweet potato I've been meaning to cook for days. Here's a simple homemade sweet potato chips recipe:
1 sweet potato thinly sliced and dried (I dried mine using paper towels)
1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 cup of peanut oil/vegetable oil
Mix brown sugar, salt and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and set aside. Pour oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
Deep fry the sweet potato until golden around the edges, about 45 secs to a minute. Drop the sweet potato in batches. Do not overcrowd the pan!
Using a strainer, shake off excess oil and transfer chips onto a baking sheet (I used aluminum foil on mine). Sprinkle the chips with the seasoning and let cool to crisp.
