Sweet Potato Fry (Air Fryer Version)

Here is a quick and guilt free sweet potato fry, Indian style. My recipe uses air fryer though sweet potato cubes can be fried even in a convection oven though it takes a little longer to roast. The fry is done traditionally in a kadai / saute pan and consumes extra oil than the quantity I used here. I don't go roasting the vegetable until it resembles sweet potato fries or until it is browned but just enough to be served as a curry, slightly crispy from outside and tender inside. Serve it warm as a part of Indian meal.

1 big sized sweet potato (About 2 cups cubes)
Salt to taste
Red chili powder to taste (I used about 1 tsp. of less spicy powder.)
1.5 tsp. oil
* Peel and cut sweet potato into cubes or small pieces.
* Add sweet potato cubes, salt and chili powder to  a bowl and toss well to coat. Add oil next and toss again so that the cubes are coated well with oil.
* Add them to the cooking pan of the fryer and cook according to the manual instructions. 
I set it at 400 deg F and toasted for 13 to 14 minutes, tossing the sweet potato cubes occasionally. (My Gourmia air fryer setting includes 3 minutes of preheating in the above mentioned cooking time. I am not sure but if there are air fryer models which require preheating before the addition of vegetables to the fryer, then the cooking time should be around 10 minutes.)
