Homemade crispy, delicious, salty deep fried sweet potato chips make the perfect healthy snack.
Wash the sweet potatoes well.
Cut the ends of the sweet potatoes
Using a peeler or knife carefully peel the sweet potatoes.
Slice using a slicer or a greater. You can also use a knife but it’s difficult to get the same thickness consistency and it takes time than with a slicer.
Wash the sliced sweet potatoes with cold water, this will remove any starch.
For the crisps to come out very crispy they need to be dry before frying them. Spread the slices over a paper towel, the paper towel will absorb water from the sweet potatoes.
Put another paper towel on top and spread another layer of the slices.
For the slices to dry well put them under direct sunlight for 1 to 2 hours. The more drier they are, the more crispy they will be.
Add cooking oil to a pot and let the oil heat.
Once the oil is hot enough add the sweet potato slices. Fry in batches.
Deep fry each batch for about 5 minutes and remove from the frying pot using a strainer.
Put the fried slices on a paper towel for some time until they lose all the oil and sprinkle salt.
The sweet potato crispy are ready to serve!
