  1. 1
    Wash the sweet potato thoroughly
    .
    washing a vegetable is very important. For, an unwashed vegetable can pose a risk to the health of a person. Hence, it is necessary to wash the vegetables off before one eats them or even cooks them. Therefore, wash the potatoes before you begin to cook them. Also, in case of potatoes, it would be ideal to dip them in water and to keep them aside for a while. Say, an hour or 2 and then pick them up. This would be ideal and the healthiest way of washing potatoes.

    Heat the cooking oil until is hot enough to deep fry, about 360 degrees Fahrenheit, then put the sliced sweet potato into the pan
    .
    It is necessary to put in the potatoes only after the oil is hot enough. If you do anything before that, it is going to be a dud. There is no way your chip shall come off. In order to check the hotness of the oil, throw in a very very small piece of potato and see if it starts swimming immediately. If it does, slide in your thinly sliced potatoes into this oil and fry them.

    Put the sliced sweet potato into the pan one by one
    .
    Do not throw away all the potatoes together, the oil is going to create a racket if you do that. Hence, put each potato once. Also, slide these potatoes from the side of the vessel because if you throw them into the oil, you are likely to burn yourself and the oil shall keep on spurting heavily for quite sometime.

    If the sweet potato is cooked put it into a plate with anything that can absorb the excess oil in it
    .
    Keep on frying until, it is crispy enough. Take care not to burn these chips in a bid to make them crispy. Make sure that the excess of oil has been taken off the sweet potatoes and then, lay them down on a tissue paper so that more of excess oil can come off this potato.
