Chili Sweet Potato and Eggplant Crisps

These tasty fried vegetable crisps go well with casual dishes, such as grilled chicken breasts on rolls with salad. Recipe serves 4-6.


1 orange sweet potato
1 slender eggplant
Oil for deep frying
1/4 teaspoon ground chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon chicken salt


1. Peel sweet potato. Cut sweet potato and eggplant into long thin strips, similar in size. Place in a large bowl, mix.
