Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips


Sweet, savory, spicy, and tangy, these air fryer sweet potato chips are the perfect snack.

Air fryer sweet potato chips are easy to make and so delicious – and that’s coming from someone that doesn’t even like sweet potatoes. Which I know, is sacrilege for a Punjabi. Shakarkandi is a staple. In chaat, as is with a little bit of salt, lemon, chili, and pepper, or even halwa.

The beauty about any chip is that other than the basic of how to cook it, there’s no exact recipe you need to follow. I decided to mix it up and try some smoked salt, and absolutely loved it! There’s a million places you can buy smoked salt but my favorite is a company called Silk Road Spices (and no, there’s no affiliate program or kick back, I just really like their products and use them in my own home). They have fabulous spices and I love that they’re an ethical company sourcing products safely and properly. But my bit of marketing shtick aside, you can switch up the spices as you see fit. The only thing to keep in mind is: Make sure the potatoes are sliced thinly, don’t store the chips until they’re crisp, and don’t over cook them, they do come out a bit soft – and that’s ok.

Now that I’ve gotten past the basics of – hey you there, you window washing Willy, I can talk about the things that matter – PUDDING! I’ve been on the desperate drive to lose the 20 pounds I gained during lock down, and it turns out the only food I miss is pudding. Creamy pudding, slightly firmer Chinese or Taiwanese puddings, or even a cardamon saffron rosewater custard. So since I can’t eat pudding, I demand you, who is bored enough to read my ramblings, eat my share of pudding.
