  1.  Same procedure can be followed for preparing potato fries.Regular/Red/purple potatoes can be used
  2.  Garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, curry powder, red pepper flakes, coriander powder, cumin powder etc can be mixed with sweet potatoes and baked
  3.  I used non stick cookie tray. If you are not using non- stick cookie tray place a parchment paper/ aluminium foil over the tray. Cut the parchment paper/ aluminium foil according to cookie tray size, excess paper/foil may burn because of temperature
  4. Little browning in sweet potatoes gives a mild caramelized taste not burnt smell
  5. Dried herbs can be added for extra flavor
  6. Fries tastes great when consumed immediately
  7. If you are consuming after sometime. Turn off the heat and keep the fries in the oven till that. That helps in retaining the crispness
  8.  The oven time may vary. The cooking time also depends on the thickness of fries
