24. Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This recipe is exactly the same as the 23. Roasted Cheesy Potatoes but this one has Sweet potatoes instead, and no cheese. You could add cheese if you wanted to.

Sweet Potatoes (large)Cubes, cut medium size (chunky!)
Coriander powder1-2 table spoons
Turmeric1 tablespoon
Hing/Asafoetida1 tablespoon
Any spice/curry powder mix*
(biriyani/sambhar/pav bhaji/chole)
2 tablespoons
Salt1 tablespoon
Cumin powder1-2 tablespoon
Olive oil2 tablespoons
Lemon juice2-3 tablespoons

*Your local south asian grocery store will have the spiced powder mix. Any brand will do.


  1. Preheat the oven to 250c on the grill setting.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into chunky cubes.
  3. Add all ingredients to the potatoes (except the lemon juice), and give it a very good mix.
  4. Lay out the spiced cubes in a baking/grilling tray. Lay a baking paper first if you are using a pizza tray with holes.
  5. Grill for about 25 minutes until the potatoes look dark.
  6. Turn off the grill, take the tray out, and pour/squeeze the lemon juice over it.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

I like it a bit WELL-ROASTED, with almost a charred outer texture. It’s not really the sweet potatoes but the spice mix.
