Home Made Potato Sticks

Potato snacks are generally everyone's favorite and this one being oven roasted, is definitely healthier compared to the deep-fried French fries version.

Ingredients:

Potato - 1 (Large)
Oil - 1 tablespoon. Can use olive oil, butter, ghee or any other type of oil
Lemon juice (optional) - 1/4 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 5-6 leaves
Sea salt - To taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Chili powder - 1/4 teaspoon

Method:

1-Pre-heat oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
2-Cut the potatoes into sticks. Peeling potato is optional. Sticks should be about 1/8 the size of a regular potato french fry.
3-Mix oil, salt, turmeric powder, chili powder and potato sticks in a bowl. Add curry leaves.
4-Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and spray some oil to coat it. Arrange potato sticks on the tray such that the sticks are all in one layer.
5-Put inside the oven for about 15 minutes, then check. Move the sticks around if needed. The total roasting time would be around 30 minutes.
5-In the end, put oven on broil for about 3 minutes and keep checking every 30 seconds to a minute to make sure the potatoes don't brown much.

Note:

The texture of the sticks would be between semi-crisp and crisp, depending upon several factors, but definitely would be crispier than the regular french fries.
