Sweet Potato Fry | Indian Side Dishes

Grandma used to make little dumplings with boiled sweet potatoes with grated coconut and ghee for use for evening snack. That was the only way I had sweet potatoes until I started cooking. I started incorporating it in parathas, baked chips with them and my recent favorite is this simple stir fry. It is a little on a sweeter side, so would make a good side for a spicy main course.
Serves - 2
Sweet potato - 1 medium - cut into 1/2" pieces
Salt - to taste
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp (based on spice level)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Heat oil in a pan and add the cut sweet potato pieces. Mix and fry for about 10 minutes mixing occasionally. When a crust forms, add the spice powders and salt and continue to cook in med-high flame until it is soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Mine took about 10 minutes after adding the spice powders. Serve as a snack or side.
Notes: It is good to cut the sweet potato into same size to help in even cooking
