How to make instant sweet potato chips with step by step images
- Wash, peel and slice potatoes very thin using a slicer. This is the key step in getting crunchy potatoes.
- In a bowl add thin slices of sweet potatoes, salt and oil. Mix well. Now take a microwave safe plate and place wax paper/ parchment paper on it.
- Now place the thin slices of sweet potato on it forming single layer. Do not overcrowd the plate.
- Place it in the oven. Now microwave it for 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the chips as the chances of getting burnt are high after 2 minutes. My microwave does good job with 3 minutes and every microwave is different so yours might take lesser or more time. If your chips looks not done in 3 minutes, leave it for another 20 to 30 seconds.
- When done check if they are crunchy and transfer it, repeat the whole process until you finish the whole bowl. You can add chilli powder and serve!
