I wanted to share this Deep Fried Sweet Potato Fries recipe. This is one of my favorite go to side dishes. This recipe is for those of you who do not have an electric deep fryer. Remember that Clos Kitchen moto is to make affordable meals with affordable appliances for people on a budget. This vegetable has so many benefits, nutrients, and vitamins. I love sweet potatoes but, I do not like to eat it when it is wet or boiled. Now don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a good sweet potato pie. Besides that I really enjoy eating it crispy as fries. What I love about this recipe is that it is very simple and only requires two ingredients. To make it a bit more healthy, you can use olive oil in substitution of the Vegetable oil or oil of your choice. For my recipe, I chose to use some vegetable oil. Feel free to add in any topping of your choice as well that you would naturally eat with regular french fries.
2 Large Sweet Potatoes
Peel and wash 2 sweet potatoes under cool water
Place them in a bowl of cool water to prevent the color from fading or darkening
Preheat oil in large deep skillet
Add oil enough to deep fry and fully cover the fries
Cut each potato in half vertically
Cut each half in long rectangle pieces
Place them back into the bowl of water
Check to see if the oil is ready by adding a pinch of flour.
If it bubbles then it is ready
Line a plate or dish with paper towels to drain the excess oil
Dry the uncooked fries by using a paper towel
Place all the dried pieces of sweet potato in the preheated oil
P.S They can all cook at the same time and save you some time.
Don't judge me for my pot! You guys can see by the looks of it, that I've made a ton of curry chicken and a whole lot more cooking.
Cover for faster cooking
Occasionally use a metal spatula to move the fries around
Once they are brown
Remove them from the oil and place them in the lined dish
