What do you need?

This recipe pulls very simple ingredients. you just need a large sweet potato, 1 tbsp of butter, salt, and your fries are ready. I used butter which is again a good source of fat however you can use any non-refined oil like groundnut or gingelly oil for frying the potatoes. If you use salted butter you don’t have to add salt. salt in the butter is enough for the taste.

It has a unique taste moreover we can try many different recipes with this. I will try to post a few new recipes soon.
