Baked Sweet Potato Chips

EVERYONE loves a good crispy potato chip. Lately, there’s been a huge trend in the potato chip industry to make baked chips instead of fried ones. Also, I’ve been seeing a lot of bloggers making baked potato chips lately. It seemed easy enough, so I was inspired to try making some too! Dolly auntie and I came up with this quick and easy Indian-inspired recipe that adds a hint of chaat masala to the chips. They were deeeelicious.

  1. approximately 2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
  2. 2 tbsp. roasted garlic flavored extra virgin olive oil
  3. ½ tsp. chili powder
  4. ½ tsp. salt
  5. ½ tsp. cumin powder
  6. ¼ tsp. chaat masala
  7. black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel potatoes.
  3. Slice potatoes very thinly* and put in a large bowl.
  4. Add oil and mix well, coating each potato.
  5. Add all spices and mix well. Use your hands to make sure each chip is coated well.
  6. Sprinkle black pepper on potatoes.
  7. Line tray with baking sheet or foil.
  8. Place sweet potatoes on foil in a single layer, but it’s ok if they overlap a bit.
  9. Bake approximately 12 – 14 minutes, until crisp and slightly brown. After 9 minutes, flip them; don’t worry, they don’t get too hot.
  10. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. They will continue to crisp while they cool.
  1. Use a slicer on a cheese grater or a mandolin to slice the potatoes; using a knife will be very difficult to maintain consistency.

    Hi, these look amazing! I was wondering how strong the spices taste on the chips, and how long they can keep for/how to store them.

      Hi, thank you! The chips just have a hint of the flavor, not too much. I’m sorry but I don’t know how long you can store them as we made two batches and they were gone within minutes!! In any event, I think you should let them cool completely and my best guess would be in a paper bag that is not completely air tight.

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    I can’t get mine to look like this, they seem to just get brown and burnt and not crispy. My sliced are rather small too but it could be that I need to buy bigger potatos. Any suggestions?

      Are you using a mandolin to slice them? A mandolin will allow you to slice them evenly. Also, when you take them out of the oven, they won’t be immediately crispy. They tend to get crispier as they cool. Play around with the timing a bit and see if that changes anything.

      Chaat Masala is an Indian spice mix. You can get it at the Indian store. Honestly, you can use ANY spice you like on these chips.
