  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoon corn starch or arrow root powder
  • 3 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup canola oil or ghee or grape seed oil
  • Fine sea salt – a big fat pinch
  1. Scrub sweet potatoes with brush to remove any dirt. Wash well and pat dry. We left the skin on sweet potatoes, but you can peel the skin off if you like it that way. Cut them into ½ inch thick about 3 inch long or 6 inch long fingers.
  2. Soak in ice cold water for about 45 minutes. This removes excess starch from sweet potatoes. Then drain water, pat dry completely.
  3. Sprinkle corn starch or arrow root powder. Coat well and evenly. Shake off any excess corn starch coating on the fries.
  4. Season with chili powder and pour oil. Mix well to get even coating of the seasoning all over the fries.
  5. Line it up in greased baking tray in a single layer.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 400 F for about 15 minutes. Remove the tray from oven. Flip all fries once. Rotate the baking tray(for even cooking) and place back into the oven and continue to bake for another 25 minutes.

  7. Once baking time is done, do not remove the fries immediately from the oven. Prop the oven door half open and leave the fries inside the oven for about 10 minutes. As fries cool, they turn ultra crispy!
  8. Transfer the fries to a large bowl and toss them with a fat pinch of sea salt.
  9. Serve baked sweet potato fries with an magnanimous dip.
