Indian Spiced Sweet Potato Fries - oven-baked, crispy and full of flavour.
Do you guys love sweet potato fries? I have my moments of loving them, but I’m not going to lie, I have a hard time turning down a good classic fry - so I have them so rarely. But, these Indian Spiced ones might be giving the classic French Fry a run for there money! Plus these fries are baked so you really don’t need to feel as guilty as you would eating a big batch of deep-fried ones.
The wonderful Indian flavour combination on these fries work perfectly on the sweet potatoes. A little bit sweet and a little bit spicy - maybe all fries should be coated in yummy spices! Actually, that was a thing at McDonald's when I was a kid - ShakeIt Fries (or something like that). I remember making a special trip just to try them - you basically got your fries, a little package of seasoning, and a bag to shake them all together in. I don’t know if they were actually good or I really just enjoyed the experience, but they must not have been all that popular because they disappeared from the menu pretty quickly.
So bring back the much improved, adult version of ShakeIt fries - it’s the perfect healthy version of an indulgent treat!
