Patat Fris/Fried Sweet Potatoes

 While visiting my girlfriend, Judy, last weekend her husband suggested that we fry some of the sweet potatoes they had on their kitchen counter. I haven't had fried sweet potato in such a long time, i figured why the heck not. So, we made some. Didn't have much to take a picture of because we kept eating them before we finished making the entire batch and I almost forgot to take a picture.


2 sweet potatoes (peeled and sliced)
4 cups of water
1 tablespoon of salt/ 1 tablespoon of sugar
1 lime (sliced and juiced)
4 cups of vegetable oil
deep fryer
2 sheets of paper towel

Add the water in a medium sized bowl with sliced lime and lime juice. Peel and slice potato and let soak in bowl for 5 minutes. Turn deep fryer on and add oil.

Remove sweet potato but do not discard liquid. Add salt to the liquid and set aside. Separate slices into batches for easier frying then add in first batch. Fry until a light golden brown and set aside on paper towels. Once all the batches are done soak each batch for 30 seconds and re-fry until a golden brown color, roughly 1 minute each batch.

Garnish with pikliz and enjoy!

  1. Try them in the oven...they are great as well!!! Plus the added benefit of no deep frying....
