Having spent this morning swimming then wandering around London for the best part of the day, I fancied a really simple snack: enter these bad boys. I had them on their own but I would imagine they would be a great side dish to most gastro-pub type mains. Incredibly easy to make, although I wouldn’t advise as a ‘post-lash’ drunk-eating snack as (and this will sound so patronising but having been in a&e twice due to burns I feel obliged to point out the blatantly obvious) hot fat is seriously dangerous and should be treated with a little respect! Anyway, less of the crap, on to the food…
You’re gonna need: (based on two portions)
Get a medium sized pan and put on a high heat. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients together and coat the sweet potato in it. When the oil is hot enough (test using a small wedge of potato, if it bubbles and floats, its hot enough) GENTLY place the potato in the fat using a Skimmer (picture below) and leave until they are golden brown and remove using the Skimmer.
