Make delicious sweet potato chips in the air fryer

Enjoy the taste of chips that are firm on the outside yet soft and fluffy on the inside. The air fryer circulates hot air around the food, which ensures that the potatoes are cooked evenly, giving them that perfect golden-brown texture without submerging them in oil. You will get chips with all the texture you crave right in the comfort of your own kitchen in just 30 minutes.

With ginger butter and cheese

The bold zing of ginger coupled with the creaminess of cheese takes the humble sweet potato to new heights. The ginger butter, infused with aromatic lime, melds seamlessly into the warm sweet potato chips and provides an undercurrent of spice and zest. The tangy white cheese offers a contrast to the lime notes, which adds layers of flavour and texture that make every bite an unforgettable experience.

Serve as a starter, a side, or a snack

The best thing about our air fryer sweet potato chips is that you can serve them any way you like. Serve them as a small starter and impress your guests with their intricate flavours. Or use them as a side dish that may or may not outshine the main course. Better yet, munch on them during movie night for a delicious and satisfying snack.

Add your favourite herbs and flavours

Our recipe recommends using vibrant herbs like chervil, coriander, or parsley. But the world of herbs is vast. For those who love the piney aroma of rosemary, steeping a sprig or two in the melted ginger-lime butter offers a fragrant twist. Thyme, with its subtle minty undertone, can be a delightful addition, too, either sprinkled atop the chips or melded within the butter.

If you seek bolder flavours, a dash of sumac brings a tangy, lemony flair to the mix. Its deep red hue is not only tantalising to the taste buds, but also a visual treat. Smoked paprika can bestow a gentle smokiness, evoking the sensation of open-fire cooking.
