Oven Baked Yam Chips

Happy New Year Friends!! My first recipe of this year. Hopefully will be able to write more this year. Have been quite busy last year. 

Yams are long red skinned sweet potato. Commonly eaten during  fast or upvas in India, this starchy root vegetable is packed with nutrition like iron, fiber, vitamin c etc. Yams can be made sweet or savory depending on how you like them. It tastes good either way, I myself like it savory. 

2 medium size yams 
1 tbs canola oil
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
Salt and pepper as per taste
Chopped cilantro for garnish

Preheat the oven at 375 F.
Wash and scrap off the dirt if any on yams. Cut them into thin rounds.

Add rest of the ingredients and toss to combine everything.

Spread them on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown turning once half way through cooking time.

Serve them on a nice platter and garnish with chopped fresh cilantro.
