Baked sweet Potato fries

Sweet potato & potato fry

I started making this as a side dish to go with chappati and rajma, but they came out so well that they ended up becoming the star of the dinner. Once it was done, we made some fresh guacamole and had it as wraps. I started with just sweet potatoes, but mixed in some plain potatoes to highlight the savory taste. I finished the last of the sweet potatoes and am now looking forward to spring vegetables.

The farmer's market had rainbow chard this weekend, and a lot of vegetable plants. I bought some tomato and pepper plants, but have not been able to plant them yet. I am hoping to get to it this weekend. What are you planting?

Sweet potato & potato fry

1 1/2 sweet potatoes
2-3 medium yukon gold potatoes
1/4 tspoon red chilli powder
1/4 tspoon turmeric powder
1/4 tspoon fresh black pepper powder
1/4 tspoon cumin seeds powder
3/4 - 1 tspoon salt (adjust according to taste)
1 1/2 tbspoon olive oil

Preheat the oven to 400deg F. Chop them in cubes. You can even slice them longer.
Mix all the spices with the potatoes and sweet potatoes. Put it on a tray and cook it for 12 min. Then stir it around and cook it for another 8-9 minutes till it's cooked.

You can serve it as a side dish, or even make wraps, sandwiches.
