This easy recipe adds an India inspired touch to a meal. The cubes of sweet potato are low in fat & oven baked. I like them with the additional red pepper flakes, but they are optional.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line small, rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  3. Add cubed sweet potatoes, tandoori paste, sesame seeds, veg oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and red pepper flakes to bowl. Stir until the sweet potatoes are well coated.
  4. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet & separate into a single layer.
  5. Bake 20 minutes on bottom shelf. Remove from oven & with spatula turn over & stir the sweet potatoes. Place bake into the oven for additional 15-20 minutes. Watch closely. They may need to be moved to top shelf. Potatoes should begin to crisp and not be too dark.
  6. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with reserved 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt.

Boy were these good! I didn't have tandoori paste so used tandoori powder and mixed it with oil. The day I made them we had unexpected company so I had to divide 2 servings between 4 people - they all licked their fingers and I have to make them again! Thanks for posting this winner!

Delicious! We both made a "happy" plate tonight with these sweet potatoes. Not too hot -- just the right amount of spice and flavor. Definitely my new favorite way to roast sweet potatoes. Served this dish with some Bombay Meatballs. Great Indian-inspired meal tonight. Made for Best of 2012 tag, January, 2013.
